Please feel free to contact us with questions about the Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs, including questions related to application procedures, eligibility, and management of current grants.

We are also happy to help arrange publicity opportunities related to the programs.


Please DO NOT contact the Lilly Endowment directly with questions related to the programs, as Christian Theological Seminary now administers these programs on behalf of the Endowment. We also ask that you not contact us to verify receipt of an application, as we will notify applicants by email once their applications have been received.

Please also note that CTS does not make available copies of past grant proposals.
