Higher Education Grant Application Deadline

Are you engaged in ministry with a college or university?

The Minnesota Annual Conference Higher Education Ministry Team has limited funding available to assist campus ministry units and congregations in ministry with college students with financial needs. The intention is that grants will be awarded to new ministries or existing ministries engaged in new initiatives that demonstrate the potential, capacity and commitment to reach new people, grow in love of God and neighbor, and heal a broken world.

Funded ministries will address critical issues related to college students in their local context, with an eye toward spiritual development as a necessary component of academic, emotional, relational, and personal development. 

Grants are awarded for one year, with renewal possible but not guaranteed for up to two additional years, and usually for declining amounts encouraging self-sufficiency of the ministry.  Application deadline is June 1; notification will be made in July and money disbursed in August.
