Interfaith Campus and Community Engagement

Ford Family Mini Grants

Thanks to the generosity of the Ford Family Initiative on Spirituality, Meaning, and Purpose, student Orgs and community partners are able to request funding, in the form of mini-grants, for projects that promote engagement across lines of religious difference. We sponsor a large variety of events focusing on service, social justice, and spiritual growth.  We encourage the flow of ideas between individuals of all (or no) faiths through dialogue.  We desire interfaith education and acceptance.

Any Miami student, faculty, or staff member is eligible to apply. Additionally, Oxford community partners doing projects that draw campus and community together are welcome to apply. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the mini-grants budget for that school year has been depleted. Projects with multiple campus and community partnerships will be prioritized.

To request a mini grant application, or learn more about interfaith opportunities at Miami, please email

Please note: Projects that involve proselytizing of any kind and projects exclusionary of or exclusive to any religious, spiritual, or secular group will not be funded.
