The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) invites proposals for grants to be funded by the Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs (RJIA). In 2017, ACLS will make three grants of up to $60,000 each to promote interdisciplinary collaboration at US-based institutions of higher education with existing strengths in the study of religion (in any humanistic or social science field), journalism, and media. RJIA is made possible by a grant from The Henry Luce Foundation.
The program features two interrelated components: a grant program for universities, and a fellowship program for humanities and social science scholars pursuing research on any aspect of religion in international contexts. ACLS will promote interaction between grantees and fellows by facilitating research residencies at grantee institutions and by funding program-wide symposia that will bring together fellows, key contacts at grantee institutions, and journalists who report on international affairs.
The RFP, which includes information about the terms of the grants and the application process, can be found athttp://www.acls.org/programs/LuceRJIAgrants/.
Questions about the program may be submitted to RJIA@acls.org, and the application deadline is March 23, 2017.
