They are (1) programs for Mentoring faculty, (2) Network Exchanges that showcase programs or projects that have been especially successful, (3) smaller Regional Conferences that enable close collaboration with schools in a regional area or with scholars who want to focus on a particular questions or subject, (4) Summer Seminars for College Teachers that bring together scholars from network schools for several weeks to address teaching concerns, and (5) Small Grants to stimulate conversation about church-related higher education and church-related mission on National Network campuses or among National Network schools in close proximity to each another. 

Currently, the LFP is accepting applications for four of these grant programs: the Mentoring Programs, Regional Conferences, Network Exchanges, and Small Grants. The deadline for Mentoring Programs, Network Exchanges, Small Grants, and Regional Conferences is September 15, 2016.
