Grant Description

Biola University’s Center for Christian Thought, through the help of a generous grant from The John Templeton Foundation, invites applications for a course-development grant on its focal theme for the 2013-2014 year, “Psychology and Spiritual Formation.” This course development grant is intended to stimulate the development and implementation of courses, or course segments, on the theme Psychology and Spiritual Formation. The program will provide two awards to faculty members who would like to develop and teach an undergraduate or graduate-level course on that theme.

Applicants will provide evidence that the course can be taught at least twice during the four year span after the course award is made and will submit a detailed syllabus for the course being considered for the award. Winners will be notified by February 15, 2013. Evaluators will offer feedback on each winning syllabus, with advice on readings, course topics, etc.

Awards will be for $5,000, for the individual faculty member, and $10,000 for the host institution, with the understanding that host institutions will set aside at least half of the institutional award for professional development or course enhancement opportunities for the award winning faculty member.

Intended applicants are university and college faculty in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, theology, and other relevant disciplines. To be eligible, applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree and identify themselves as members of the Christian tradition, broadly construed. Selection criteria include: fit of research proposal with focal theme and questions, and coherence of intended course plan. Application Instructions

Applicants are asked to submit the following by November 15, 2012:

Curriculum vitae

A detailed syllabus for the course or course-segment proposed

A 150-word summary description of the course

Award winning faculty will be asked to provide a revised syllabus based on feedback and evidence the course will be taught at least twice during the four year span after the course award is made before the financial award will be granted. Completed applications should be submitted electronically to cct@biola.edu.
