African Theological Advance: Request for Proposals, Round Two


Nagel Institute for the Study for the Study of World Christianity at Calvin College, Grnd Rapids, USA, , with generous support from the Templeton Religion Trust, invites project proposals for the “African Theological Advance” initiative. Its aim is to support African Christian scholars, in theology and other disciplines, to engage in fresh research, thinking and teaching about Christianity’s engagement with contemporary African society.

Round 2 of this initiative will make 8 grants between $35,000 and $50,000 USD for two-year research and curricular development projects. These grants are for postgraduate African theological seminaries or university-based postgraduate theology programs. The awards will be for research and curricular development projects that address gospel and culture issues in Africa by drawing on interdisciplinary methods and insights to address one of four topical areas:
• African spirituality and values
• Science and religion—particularly health and healing
• Religious innovation and competition
• Forgiveness, peacemaking and reconciliation
