With funding from the Henry Luce Foundation, the Luce-AAR Advancing Public Scholarship Grant program offers grants to support scholars of religion who are working to engage publics in innovative ways, through projects designed for presentation in public spaces and outreach through publicly accessible sites.
The grant program is available to AAR members in any country/location.
The program will consist of five grant cycles: 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026.
For the 2023 cycle, 25 grants of $5,000 (USD) will be awarded.
Notification of the application status will typically be made by July 31.
AAR members who received an AAR/Luce Advancing Public Scholarship grant for the 2022 cycle cannot apply again to the program until the 2025 cycle.
