APPLICATION AND DEADLINE
We encourage you to start thinking through and working on the initial interest form as early as possible so you can have time to pray, discuss, edit, and submit your initial interest form by March 26, 2023. Applications will be evaluated based on the metrics outlined in the application form and as listed above. Once the application is submitted it will be reviewed by members of the grant advisory panel. Applications are not considered on a first-come, first-served basis, and earlier applications are not given priority consideration. No Word documents, e-mails, or PDFs, will be accepted; only electronic applications through the Veritas website are allowed.
You will be notified late March whether or not your initial interest form has been accepted. You will then be invited to complete an in-depth application and begin preparing for the presentation phase.
Applicants will be contacted to schedule a date and time to present their ideas before the grant advisory panel. Presentations will be scheduled for May 7, 2023. Block this afternoon off so you will be open if asked to present. Presentations will last 10 minutes followed by questions from the grant advisory panel. The panel is made up of members of Veritas who exemplify being an everyday missionary. More details on the presentation will be given to those that move forward in the process.
Final grant decisions will be made in late May. Instructions will be provided to grant recipients on how to retrieve their grant funding after decisions have been made.
If you are awarded a grant you will be required to fill out a 2-3 page evaluation periodically throughout 2023.
