CTNS-Vatican Observatory  |   J.K. Russell Fellowship |   SRCP Research Fellowships (2002)

CTNS Fellowship Program

The CTNS Fellowship Program, part of the now concluded Science and Religion Course Program, was designed to encourage the cultivation of science-religion dialogue within curricula at select U.S. research institutions. The funding was intended to offset some of the costs associated with the development of new curricula, namely philosophical and pedagogical challenges presented by science and religion, and the already stretched schedules and scholarly resources of teaching professors who engage in the development of new research. 

The Fellowship program requires 1) a new course to be developed and taught which engages the interdisciplinary concerns of science and religion, and 2) sponsorship of an on- campus conference designed to encourage the development of science and religion curricula at the host institution. The 2002 Fellowships have been awarded to Duke University, Emory University, Harvard University, University of Arizona, University of Chicago, University of Notre Dame, University of Washington, Vanderbilt University, Yale University, and jointly to University of California at Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union. Note that this was a one-time program as part of the final year of the SRCP grant.
