6-10 grants between $300-$500 up to $3,000 will be awarded per year and will help to inspire and support future scholarship on religion in the city and help to diversify the field.
Student grants will help support:
(1) research (archival, ethnographic, etc.)
(2) attendance and/or presentation of papers at local conferences (e.g. Mid-Atlantic Region AAR 3 day Conference)
(3) participation in internship programs (e.g. Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty).
Though preference will be given to proposals from Morgan students working on religion in Baltimore, proposals by students from any of Maryland’s HBCU’s seeking to further the study of religion and the city more broadly will also be considered. Student grant recipients will be chosen by a selection committee consisting of the director and fellow (during YR 2-3) and two members of the local advising committee.
Spring 2019 Deadline: May 5, 2019
