Saint Peter the Aleut Individual Grant Program

This Grant Program is awarded on a rolling basis to youth and young adults to help offset the
cost of attendance for eligible youth/young adult: retreats, pilgrimages, conferences, events and
workshops. It may also be used to offset the costs of attending a seminary or monastery program
for the exploration of a vocation. This grant may also be awarded to clergy and lay people
seeking to attend continuing education events in the area of youth ministry.

This Grant is administered by:

Deadline
All applications must be submitted electronically to: yyacm@oca.org with the subject “St.Peter
the Aleut Grant”. There is no deadline, as grants are awarded throughout the year, although there
is a budgetary limit to how many grants can be awarded in a given year. Please allow ten
business days for your grant request to be processed.

Eligibility
Any person may apply for a grant to aid in expenses (travel, lodging, and/or registration)
incurred attending an eligible youth or young adult program. Eligible programs include (but are
not limited to):
- Retreats and Workshops sponsored by the Orthodox Church in America (OCA) or its
dioceses, deaneries, or parishes
- Vocation discernment programs sponsored by OCA Seminaries and Monasteries
- Any program, retreat, conference, or workshop sponsored by The Orthodox Christian
Fellowship (OCF), one of its regions or chapters
- Approved continuing education event in the field of Youth Ministry
- Any event sponsored by SYNDESMOS, the World Fellowship of Orthodox Youth
- Any youth program or event sponsored by the National Council of Churches (NCC) or
the World Council of Churches (WCC)

****Due to limited funds, the existence of many scholarship programs, and the prevalence and popularity of Church camping programs, grant applications for attending Church camps are given lowest priority.******

Award Process
Applications are awarded on a rolling basis throughout the year. Applicants who are members of
the Orthodox Church in America will be given first priority. Priority will also be given to
applicants that demonstrate the financial support of a local OCA parish. All award decisions are
made by a committee composed of Mr. Andrew Boyd (Youth Department Director), Father
Christopher Rowe and Mr. Jeremy Pletnikoff. Awards are typically between $100 and $500 and
are intended to help cover certain expenses like travel and registration, not to eliminate them
totally. Please allow ten business days for your application to be processed and reviewed.
