PROGRAM

Dissertation Fellowships – Available to ABD PhD students

DESCRIPTION

The Dissertation Fellowship (DF) program supports the final year PhD or ThD dissertation writing for students engaged in research pertaining to North American Christianity, especially projects with the potential to strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions, including seminaries, while simultaneously advancing American religious and theological scholarship.

ELIGIBILITY

DF applicants must be candidates for the PhD or ThD degree in an accredited graduate school in the United States or Canada. Applicants must be on track to fulfill all pre-dissertation requirements, including approval of the dissertation proposal, by February 1 of the award year and should expect to complete the dissertation by the end of the following academic year. These fellowships are intended to support the final year of dissertation writing.

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 grantmaking, including the Dissertation Fellowship program, LI is interested in funding projects with the potential to strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions while simultaneously advancing American religious and theological scholarship. The Louisville Institute also has an interest in strengthening the quality of theological school teaching.

Applicants may not submit applications to more than one Louisville Institute grant or fellowship program within the same grant year (June 1-May 31).

Doctoral Fellows are encouraged to apply for the Dissertation Fellowship program. It is also open to outstanding students who may not intend to teach in theological education, but whose dissertation projects have the potential to strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions. Questions about eligibility may be sent to Pamala Collins.
