We are thrilled to announce Global Scholars will provide an annual Christian Scholars Foundation Legacy Grant beginning in 2023. The grant will be awarded to a junior faculty member in the U.S. or Canada. The purpose of this grant is to advance Christian scholarship, encourage Christian scholars seeking to integrate Christian faith with their academic endeavors, and nurture Christian faculty as they strive for wider recognition in and beyond the academy.
Applicants are required to be members of the Society of Christian Scholars and the Emerging Scholars Network. The 2023 Christian Scholars Foundation Legacy Grant will be $10,000. More details and the grant application are available at the Society of Christian Scholars member site.
About the Christian Scholars Foundation, the Society of Christian Scholars, and the Emerging Scholars Network
The Christian Scholars Foundation was a small family foundation formed in 1986 to encourage and support Christian junior faculty in their efforts to gain recognition and stature in the U.S. or Canadian academy. The Foundation also desired to encourage these scholars in their efforts to integrate Christian faith and academic endeavor. In December 2022, the Foundation closed its operations and transferred its funds to Global Scholars in order to continue both organizationsâ€™ shared vision of aiding Christian scholars as they seek to have a redemptive influence in higher education.
The Society of Christian Scholars is a global movement of Christian scholars seeking to live out Godâ€™s calling to serve as scholars in their various cultural contexts. As a principal partner of the Society, Global Scholars provides financial and logistical support to the Societyâ€™s fourteen programs and services.
The Emerging Scholars Network is a national, digital-first effort to develop and support the next generation of Christian scholars at universities in the United States who follow Jesus, so that they can do so in community with other Christian scholars, exercising a faithful Christian presence in their disciplines and institutions. The Emerging Scholars Network is a U.S. partner of Global Scholars.
