Christianity and Social Sciences in Contemporary Africa: Call for applications for research grants


With generous support from the John Templeton Foundation, the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, announces two research grants programs.

One grants program will feature African theologians and the other will center on the continent’s social sciences. These programs’ researchers will focus on African Christianity, one of the most dynamic forces in Africa today. The grants for theologians will address how African modes of spirituality shape African Christianity today and how African values and virtues are embedded within a Christian context. The program for social scientists addresses contemporary African Christianity as a social force, focusing on its innovative and competitive character.
