Scholarship Description

The Doctoral Fellowship (DOC) program encourages current Ph.D./Th.D. students to consider theological education as their vocation. The Institute awards up to ten two-year Doctoral Fellowships of $2,000 per year. In addition, Fellows constitute a peer learning cohort that meets six times over a two year period.

Applicants must be Ph.D. or Th.D. students, currently in their first or second year of doctoral study in an accredited graduate program in the United States or Canada. Eligible proposals should describe the applicant’s commitment to the Christian church and theological education and suggest how his or her doctoral work would be an appropriate preparation of a career in theological school teaching. Applicants may represent a variety of academic disciplines, including, but not limited to, history, ethics, the social sciences, biblical studies, and historical, systematic, and practical theology.

In all its grantmaking, including the Doctoral Fellowship program, LI is interested in funding persons and projects with the potential to strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions while simultaneously advancing American religious and theological scholarship.
