First Book Grant Program for Minority Scholars
Louisville Institute’s First Book Grant Program for Minority Scholars (FBM) assists junior, non-tenured religion scholars of color to complete a major research project on an issue in North American Christianity related to the priorities of the Louisville Institute. All too often such scholars are asked to assume a heavy set of institutional responsibilities that can make it more difficult to complete the scholarly work necessary to secure tenure. FBM enables scholars to spend an entire academic year devoted to that research project while free of other professional responsibilities.
Louisville Institute seeks to identify and support scholars of color whose academic work is in conversation with church leaders and shows promise to strengthen their faith communities.
