Fellowship Partners Program Update

One year ago, the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) embarked on a discernment phase for the Academic Track of the Fellowship Partners Program. As one of ECF’s longstanding programs, the goals of the Fellowship Partners Program have shifted in tandem with the changing needs of the Church. The goal of this discernment was to evaluate the program based on what the Church needs for the future.

During this last year, ECF has had numerous conversations with key stakeholders in the program and leaders in the Church. While these external discussions have been fruitful, our internal work is not yet done. As a result, ECF will continue to discern what is next for the Academic Track with the hope of relaunching the program by the end of 2023.

The Ministry Track will continue its 2023 application cycle. Ministry Track applications will be made available in January 2023 and due on March 17, 2023.
