Though it is for journalists, and not academics per se, this is still a very cool opportunity. The Religion Newswriters Association is offering scholarships up to $5,000 for journalists and editors to study religion at any accredited college, university, or seminary. Here are the full details. If you are eligible, I encourage you to apply, and if you are not eligible, I encourage you to pass along the information to your favorite neighborhood journalist or editor.
