The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania offers continuing education grants for both professional and volunteer leaders in the Diocese. These grants can be applied toward the cost of attending a conference or short-term course of study. Note that continuing education funds cannot be applied toward classes in degree or certificate programs.
All grant requests go through the Continuing Education Committee. The Committee meets four times a year. The next deadline for grant applications is November 26, 2014. Leaders seeking assistance for continuing education during the winter months are encouraged to apply by the November deadline.
More information on continuing education grants, as well as downloadable forms, can be accessed by visiting the continuing education page on the diocesan website. If you have any questions about the grant process, contact the Continuing Education Committee or our office.
Looking for an upcoming continuing education opportunity? The 2015 Forma Conference is January 28-30 at the Magnolia Hotel and Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, Texas. This year's keynote speakers include Brene Brown. There is also a whole lineup of workshops designed for ministry leaders in various Christian formation contexts.
