As it has since its inception in 1857, SIM, an independent, non-profit 501(c) 3 organization, provides financial, pastoral and advocacy support to those preparing for ordained parish and chaplaincy ministries in the Episcopal Church. Throughout our history we have provided more than $6 million in assistance to nearly 5,000 men and women during their seminary years. The Church’s aspiration for dedicated, faithful, articulate, well educated and well trained ordained leaders remains the same as it did more than 150 years ago. Over that century and a half SIM has awarded annual needs- based scholarships to Episcopal postulants and candidates, most of whom became leaders as parish priests and many, bishops. Currently 27% of Episcopal bishops were recipients of SIM grants.
