Summer Stipend Program

Scholarship Description

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.
