Luce Foundation Invites LOIs for Theology Program Responsive Grants

The Henry Luce Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for work that advances understanding of religion and theology.

The foundation's Theology program supports projects whose engagements extend into a variety of settings — from religious communities and academic fields to activist networks and media venues. Emphasis is placed on projects that cross religious, disciplinary, and geographic borders, and on scholarship that is theoretically sophisticated, historically informed, critically reflexive, and practically invested.

Priority is given to work that rethinks what theology is and reimagines its contemporary significance; to research that creatively examines received assumptions about religion, secularity, and public culture; and to projects located at the intersections of theological inquiry and the multidisciplinary study of religion.

Letters of Intent may be sent at any time. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

See the Luce Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
