The Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. Scholarship

Giving primarily in Louisville and Jefferson County, KY.

Dissertation Fellowship Program

Applicants must be candidates for the Ph.D. or Th.D. degree who have fulfilled all pre-dissertation requirements, including approval of the dissertation proposal and expect to complete the dissertation by the end of the following academic year. Up to ten Dissertation Fellowships will be awarded each academic year. Each fellowship will provide a stipend of $18,000 for twelve months beginning in September. The Louisville Institutes Dissertation Fellowship program is designed to support the final year of writing on promising Ph.D. and Th.D. dissertation projects dealing with aspects of American religious life that are related to the concerns of the Louisville Institute. Eligible proposals should promise a significant contribution to the study of American religion. Preference will be given to proposals that attempt: 1) to describe more fully how the Christian faith is actually lived by contemporary persons and to bring the resources of the Christian faith into closer relation to their daily lives and 2) to help us understand more adequately the institutional reconfiguration of American religion. Proposals on certain other issues of importance to the churches are also welcome. Proposed projects may employ a variety of methodological perspectives, including, but not limited to, history, ethics, the social sciences, biblical studies, and historical, systematic, and practical theology. They may also be interdisciplinary in nature. In all its grant making, including the Dissertation Fellowship program, the Louisville Institute is interested in funding projects that contribute in significant ways to our understanding of contemporary religious communities. Consequently, very few dissertation projects funded in recent years have dealt with American religion prior to the mid-nineteenth century. Fellowships are not renewable. All tuition, medical insurance, and required fees are the responsibility of the student. Grantees may not accept other awards that provide a stipend during the tenure of this fellowship nor may they undertake substantial outside employment (more than fifteen hours per week) without written permission. The Dissertation Fellowship program has no residence requirement. In the year of their award, however, all fellows are expected to participate in the Louisville Institutes two-day Winter Seminar. Travel and lodging expenses for the Seminar will be covered by the Louisville Institute.

Summer Stipend Program

Applicants must have earned the terminal degree in their chosen vocation (e.g. M.Div., Ph.D., Th.D.) and must demonstrate a capacity to complete the proposed project in a timely fashion. Up to ten Summer Stipends will be granted each year. Each award provides a stipend of $8,000. The Summer Stipend is intended to support ten weeks of research and writing. Preference will be given to those proposals that address the current program priorities of the Louisville Institute: Christian faith and life, religious institutions, and pastoral leadership. Proposals on other topics are also welcome. Proposed projects may employ a variety of methodological perspectives, including, but not limited to, history, ethics, the social sciences, biblical studies, and historical, systematic, and practical theology. They may also be interdisciplinary in nature. Summer Stipend awards are not renewable. Grant checks will be issued in mid-May. The Institute will pay the grant award directly to the recipient.
