The Episcopal Church Foundation has supported over 200 scholars and ministry leaders throughout the Episcopal Church, fostering innovation in the theological formation and ministerial leadership in challenging times. The Fellows who are selected have a significant track record of going on to share their knowledge, experience, and best practices with the wider Church in transformative ways. Applicants may be lay or ordained, they do not have to be considering ordained ministry to be an ECF Fellow. Applicants may be Episcopalians or members from any member church of the Anglican Communion. There are two tracks: the academic track and the ministry track. This is geared towards graduate students.
Founded in 1949, The Episcopal Church Foundation is an independent, lay-led and inclusive organization that helps build, vitalize and transform Episcopal faith communities focusing on formation, finance and resources. Our purpose is to be a catalyst, agent, and advocate for transformation, renewal and growth in the Episcopal Church in practical, innovative and spiritually-grounded ways.
