Who can apply for a grant?
Full-time faculty teaching in North American schools of higher education - Colleges, Universities, and Theological Schools. In general, faculty need to be either located in a religion or theology department or working full-time in an ATS accredited theological school.
What type of research projects do you fund?
The Wabash Center funds projects directly related to teaching and learning in theology and religion. We do not fund the creation of textbooks or materials for classroom use. We occasionally fund projects directly focused on issues related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion.
Who can be involved with a grant project?
In general, people involved with the work associated with a funded project are considered full-time religion and theology faculty who are teaching in North American schools of higher education - Colleges, Universities, and Theological Schools. Occasionally, consultants outside the disciplines of religious studies and theology can be included as consultants. Decisions about inclusion of non-full-time faculty are made on a case by case basis. Sometimes this may include graduate students and adjunct faculty.

High school programs are not eligible. However, programs in religion located at colleges or universities that do not have a religion department may be eligible for grant funding.
