 CCCU Grant

Please consider encouraging your faculty to apply for a Networking Grant for Christian Scholars, sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.

Networking grants support research that is significantly informed by Christian practices, perspectives, and purposes. Any topic is appropriate, but applications must clearly articulate the ways in which both the research and the scholarly products draw on the riches of the Christian tradition and are themselves exemplary of Christian thought and life.

Because these grants are intended to promote scholarship that will be disseminated in the larger academy, projects targeted to Christian audiences, such as research or the preparation of materials that are primarily focused on CCCU institutions or churches, are not eligible for awards.

The project director for each Networking team must be a full-time faculty member at an institution that holds full membership in the CCCU. Team members must include faculty from at least one other CCCU member or affiliate institution and may include faculty from non-CCCU schools.

Small teams of scholars are invited to apply for 1-year Planning Grants ($1500 - $3000) or 3-year Initiative Grants ($12,000 - 18,000). The application deadline is February 16, 2016. To learn more, please go to the CCCU Networking Grants for Christian Scholars website.

Networking Grant for Christian Scholars

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities invites you to consider applying for a Networking Grant for Christian Scholars. Networking Grants are intended to mobilize CCCU faculty to create and disseminate high quality scholarship that brings Christian voices into contemporary academic conversations.
 
Networking grants support research that is significantly informed by Christian practices, perspectives, and purposes. Any topic is appropriate, but applications must clearly articulate the ways in which both the research and the scholarly products draw on the riches of the Christian tradition and are themselves exemplary of Christian thought and life. Scholarly products, such as books, articles, art exhibitions, concerts, and the like need not use explicit Christian language. Nor need they address overtly religious topics. But the grant application itself must clearly articulate the ways in which the proposed scholarly program is faithfully Christian.
 
Small teams of scholars are invited to apply for 1-year Planning Grants ($1500 - $3000) or 3-year Initiative Grants ($12,000 - 18,000).  The application deadline is 16 February 2016. To learn more, please go to the CCCU Networking Grants for Christian Scholars website.  There you will find information about the 2015 award winners, as well as information on how to apply for a 2016 Planning Grant or Initiative Grant.
