There are a variety of grants available from foundations and other agencies. A good place to start is at the AAR and SBL Annual Meetings, which often feature a time for grant-making organizations to meet with grant seekers. Another option is a Web search or a good talk with your institution’s grants officer, if such exists, to find out what is available in your field. The Association of Theological Schools, The Lilly Endowment, and other agencies fund religious studies, though be forewarned that competition is keen for the relatively few offerings. Make use of the Internet to keep up on the latest prospects.
