SCP SCIENTIFICALLY ENGAGED LECTURE GRANTS

June 14, 2021

In order to foster philosophical discussion and encourage scientifically engaged projects at a wider range of colleges and universities, the Society of Christian Philosophers is sponsoring a scientifically engaged lecture grant. The program will support up to 6 grants for the 2021/2022 academic year. Each grant will provide up to $2,000 for departments to host a Christian philosopher or theologian involved in scientifically engaged work for a campus event or events.

REQUIREMENTS AND CONDITIONS

  • The applicant (i.e., inviter) must be a member of the Society of Christian Philosophers, the American Catholic Philosophical Association, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, or the Evangelical Theological Society. 
  • The host department/institution is responsible for all lecture logistics. 
  • Grant funds will be disbursed in advance of the event upon approval of the application. The funds can be supplemented or leveraged with other institutional funds, but this is neither a requirement nor a factor in evaluating applications.
  • The primary lecture should be video recorded, and a copy of that video will be shared with the SCP for posting on the Society’s YouTube channel.
  • After the event, grant recipients need not submit receipts but are required to submit both a brief report and photos of the event.

HOW TO APPLY

  • Applications must be emailed to the grant co-leaders at scpcrosstraining@gmail.com
  • Each application should be attached as one single page and saved as a PDF.
  • Identify the philosopher to be invited and include a brief description of the scientifically engaged topic they might present on.
  • Indicate the format of the events anticipated (e.g. lecture, classroom visit, or lecture with lunch with graduate students, undergrads, etc.) .
  • Indicate the approximate date of the event (e.g. Nov 2021).
  • Provide a high-level overview of the budget, including any matching funds, with a clear indication of the total request of the SCP.
