Misericordia Scholarship Fund

Misericordia Scholarship Fund

In his announcement of the Holy Year of Mercy, Pope Francis said, “No one can be excluded from the mercy of God . . . the Church is the house that welcomes all and refuses no one.” Because we at NRVC believe in what do, we want to welcome all—and refuse no one—to our mission of promoting religious life for the next generation.

To accomplish this, NRVC is proud of its Misericordia Scholarship Fund. This Fund, initiated during the Year of Consecrated Life and in anticipation of the Holy Year of Mercy, provides grants for NRVC membership and programming to religious institutes who otherwise could not afford them.

How to apply for a scholarship

To date, over 100 scholarships have been given for finanical assistance with membership fees and workshops fees due to the generosity of NRVC members who have donated to the Misericordia Fund.

How to donate to the Misericordia Scholarship Fund

We hope you see the value in assisting religious institutes in financial need to become NRVC members so that they may have access to the many benefits our organization provides, including complimentary subscriptions to our award-winning publications, member's only access to website features and special events, and members rates for our essential programs and workshops. Over $62,000 has been donated by NRVC members since its inception.

To assist canonically-recognized religious communities and vocation directors in their professional development. please click here to submit your donation.

Whatever size gift you give will go in direct support of a religious community committed to vocation ministry. Because of your collective efforts in responding to our appeal, NRVC can reach out with a generous heart to assist others to become NRVC members. If you have already donated, we are grateful. If you are still considering a gift, please know we are grateful for your contribution. Our goal is that all our members would respond no matter the amount by the year's end.

Gratitude for assistance

The NRVC Misericordia Fund has assisted our congregation to assist with our membership fees, and allows us to stay connected to the National Religious Vocation Conference. This relationship affords us the opportunity to stay fully informed throughout the year. We are grateful for the ongoing resources that benefit the discerners we serve, as well as the men in formation within our community.

Our community has been a recipient of the NRVC Misericordia grant for the past two years.  This generous assistance has enabled us to become members of the National Religious Vocation Conference that we otherwise would not have been able to afford.  The benefits for joining the NRVC has exponentially exceeded our expectations, which we would never have been able to realize without the most generous gift of the Misericordia Fund.  The resources and opportunities that are available to NRVC members has been extremely valuable to our community and we are now able to be a part of the larger Church in the promotion of religious vocations.
