Louisville Institute Invites Applications for Pastoral Leaders Sabbatical Grant Program

The Louisville Institute, a program funded by the Lilly Endowment and based at Louisville Seminary, offers grants to support both pastoral sabbaticals and research by scholar/pastors and scholar/educators that help strengthen the religious life of North American Christians and their institutions while simultaneously advancing American religious and theological scholarship.

Through its 2009 Sabbatical Grant for Pastoral Leaders grant competition, the Louisville Institute will award up to forty grants for eight-week ($10,000 each) and twelve-week ($15,000 each) sabbaticals. During their sabbaticals, recipients will devote themselves to a season of prayer, study, renewal, and reflection on their vocations and ministries. Recipients must be released from all pastoral duties during the entire grant period.

Recipients are free to use the grant award at their discretion. Previous grantees have used their awards for the purchase of books, research material and equipment, conference and seminary expenses, salary replacement, travel, etc.

For more information, see the Philanthrophy News Digest or the complete RFP (request for proposals).
