Grants are awarded on a one-time, one-year basis. On occasion, a two-year grant will be considered and awarded, but the grantee must provide detailed information in the interim report on results-to-date and the projected second-year project plan for the second year of funding to be approved:
Catholic colleges: Yes, for initiatives that strengthen student understanding and practice of their Catholic faith, for example, through a series of Scripture studies, compelling theme-based retreats, rigorous examination of Catholic intellectual history, or other programs that increase appreciation of Church teaching and of its thinkers, authors, and rich insights.
Secular institutions: Yes, support is restricted to Newman Club programming at the Philadelphia-area public and private non-Catholic institutions and is generally overseen by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Office for Catechetical Formation.
Catholic Private and independent schools located in the archdiocese of Philadelphia are eligible for funding.
Individual Archdiocese of Philadelphia schools are also eligible for funding.
