The Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture is pleased to announce we are now taking applications for the 2018-19 Young Scholars in American Religion program.

The next generation of leading teachers and scholars in American religion is at work in our colleges and universities today. With support from Lilly Endowment, the Center assists these early career scholars in the improvement of their teaching and research and in the development of professional communities through the Young Scholars in American Religion program. In addition to its historic concentration on teaching and research, the Young Scholars program now includes a seminar devoted to such other professional issues as constructing a tenure portfolio, publication, grant writing, and department politics.

Beginning in 2018, a series of seminars devoted to the enhancement of teaching and research will be offered in Indianapolis. The aims of all sessions of the program are to develop ideas and methods of instruction in a supportive workshop environment, stimulate scholarly research and writing, and create a community of scholars that will continue into the future.

The dates for these seminars are:

  • Session I: April 11-15, 2018

  • Session II: October 17-21, 2018

  • Session III: March 20-24, 2019

  • Session IV: October 2-5, 2019


Sylvester A Jonson (Virginia Tech) and Sally M. Promey (Yale University) will lead the 2018-2019 seminars.

The deadline for submission is December 1st, 2017.
