Global Religion International Collaboration Research Grant Competition


The Global Religion Research Initiative (GRRI) of the Center for the Study of Religion and Society (CSRS) at the University of Notre Dame (IN, USA) will be awarding an average of 10 research collaboration grants each year over the next three years (30 grants total), to fund the development of new, collaborative, empirical research projects in the social sciences focused on the study of religions around the globe. The central purpose of this program is to foster new, potentially long-term, empirical research collaborations between social science scholars of religion in North America and those in countries beyond the North Atlantic world (i.e., not Canada, the U.S., and Western Europe). Each grant will provide up to $25,000 to be used by the research collaborators for transportation, lodging, communications, meeting expenses, data collection and analysis, the purchase of research materials, and other collaborative research costs. Grant money may not be used for researchers’ salaries, stipends, or teaching reduction. Ten fellowships will be awarded each year on average over the next three academic years (2017-2018, 2018-2019, and 2019-2020). The Global Religion Research Initiative is funded by the Templeton Religion Trust of Nassau, Bahamas.
