Funding Opportunities


The CSRC will make available upon request grants for campus events directly related to the Center’s research agenda. The awarding of these grants is subject to the availability of funds, and grants are given solely at the discretion of the Center’s Executive Committee. Requests for these funds are to be made in writing and must address how the event directly supports and/or promotes the development of research and scholarship in the areas of religion and culture at Vanderbilt.

Co-sponsor grants of up to $250.00 are regularly available for lectures or conferences with a subject matter in the area of religion and culture. These events must involve the sponsorship of at least one other Vanderbilt school, college, department, or program, they must have faculty participation from more than one school or college, and they must be open to all interested Vanderbilt faculty. The funds may be used for any purposes related to the event except to pay directly for Vanderbilt faculty honorarium or stipends. CSRC co-sponsorship (or some other suitable acknowledgement of having received CSRC funds) must be included in all publicity associated with the event. Three or four of these grants are available each semester.

Graduate Assistantships

The CSRC has assistantship opportunities for graduate students at various times throughout the academic calendar. Current Vanderbilt University graduate students from all schools and departments are eligible to apply.
