NFCRV Mission 

The National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations (NFCRV) serves as a sign of hope for the future of consecrated life and is dedicated to increasing the number of women and men entering religious communities. NFCRV hopes to accomplish this goal by: 

■ Offering financial assistance to religious institutes 

so that they may accept candidates who have student loan obligations.

■ Assisting congregations in developing policies and resources 

so that they may work effectively with those who have educational debt. 

■ Inviting contributors to invest

so that the vital legacy of religious life continues for the Church and the world. 

The Fund awards grants based on need. Any canonically recognized religious institute with membership in the National Religious Vocation Conference may apply for a grant to service a candidate’s educational debt during formation.

 

Application Process

NFCRV directors meet annually to award grants. Applications are accepted beginning January 1 of each year. Application deadlines will vary each year, so please review the grant guidelines. You will receive confirmation of receipt of your application and will be notified regarding the decision of the NFCRV Board after its annual spring meeting.  2017 GRANT INFORMATION.
