Sabbatical Grant for Pastors (Louisville Institute)

The Louisville Institute Deadline: November 1 The Louisville Institute offers grants to support both pastoral sabbaticals and research by scholar/pastors and scholar/educators that strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions while simultaneously advancing American religious and theological scholarship. These grant programs aim to serve three strategic constituencies whose competence and well being are essential to the future of the church: pastors, younger scholars, and researchers and scholars for the broader church. In doing so, they also seek to advance our understanding of three issues of importance to both church and academy: Christian faith and life, pastoral leadership, and religious institutions.

Keep in mind that you may only apply to one program during a given grant year. For more detailed descriptions and applications procedures follow the links below. Grant Programs for Pastors Sabbatical Grants for Pastoral Leaders Program provides pastoral leaders with sustained periods of time for rest, renewal, and reflective engagement with their life and work and issues related to contemporary religious leadership. Research periods supported by this grant may range from nine months to one year.
