Grant Conditions

Eligibility

Requests for grants will be considered from member schools, or diocesan bishops on behalf of member schools. Requests will also be considered from regional and diocesan Episcopal schools organizations.

All schools applying for NAES grants must be a NAES member school for both the current year in which they apply and the year in which the grant is disbursed. 

Priority shall be given to those schools who have not received a grant in recent years, do not have budgets that accommodate the project requested, and have been long-standing NAES members.

Purpose

Requests for grants shall be in keeping with the stated mission and purpose of NAES. These are summarized below for your information and convenience. Please note, NAES grants may be used to cover costs associated with attending an NAES event, such as Biennial Conference.
