The 2019 Innovative Program Awards funding cycle is now open!
Funded by a portion of funds raised through the Sowing Seeds for our Holy Work Annual Campaign, Innovative Program Awards support ACPE members and/or centers in the achievement of ACPE’s Strategic Initiatives. Specifically, these innovative projects allow ACPE to support the development and dissemination of new and experimental programs that extend CPE into atypical settings, test and disseminate new pastoral/spiritual care theology and education, and/or develop new research concepts and methodologies.
New This Year
Two-step application process designed to make applying easier!
