Travel grants for research on racial and ethnic diversity in American Evangelicalism

The Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals (ISAE) at Wheaton College (IL) is offering a limited number of research travel grants in connection with studies that highlight the historic and contemporary racial and ethnic diversity of American Evangelicalism.  Aimed at both doctoral students and currently-employed faculty, the grants are intended to defray travel, lodging, meal, and copying expenses for research in the upcoming 2014-2015 academic year. While the ISAE’s focus has traditionally been historical, these grants are intended to encourage good work that advances our understanding of the scope and shape of evangelicalism—applications from scholars in other disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, missiology, religious studies, and others are also encouraged to apply.  A total of five (5) grants in the amount of $2,000 will be made to graduate students currently in the process of researching and writing their dissertations, as well as five (5) awards of $1,000 targeting faculty members in the process of researching areas relevant to this competition.  The awards are made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation in connection with an earlier ISAE conference on “The Changing Face of Evangelicalism.” All applications must be received by April 30th, 2014.
