AAR - Collaborative Research Grant
Organization: American Academy of Religion
These grants are intended to stimulate cooperative research among scholars in different institutions, with a focus on a clearly identified research project.They may also be used for interdisciplinary work with scholars outside the field of religion, especially when such work shows promise of continuing beyond the year funded. Grants can provide funds for networking and communication. In addition, grants may be used to support small research conferences. Conference proposals will be considered only if they are designed primarily to advance research. Conferences presenting papers that report on previous research will not be considered. A group must apply through an AAR member designated as the project director. In the case of proposals involving scholars from other disciplines, not all participants need to hold AAR membership. Applicants must be current AAR members who have been in good standing for the previous three years. Applicants will not be considered who have received an AAR Research Award in the previous five years. Applicants must have completed the doctorate. Grant awards will range from $500 to $5000.
