SSRC Religion, Spirituality, and Democratic Renewal Fellowship
The Religion, Spirituality, and Democratic Renewal (RSDR) Fellowship of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), with the support of the Fetzer Institute, aims to bring knowledge of the place of religion and spirituality into scholarly and public conversations about renewing democracy in the United States.
The fellowships offer research support over a period of up to 12 months to doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy and to postdoctoral researchers within five years of their PhD. Doctoral candidates will receive up to $15,000 and postdoctoral researchers up to $18,000 toward research-related expenses. Applications are welcome from scholars at either of these career stages from any country around the world.
We welcome proposals on religion and spirituality in its relation to democracy from across all fields in the social sciences, humanities, and theology. Research projects using any social science methodology, quantitative, qualitative, or mixed, are eligible, and we encourage applications that are grounded in novel theories and analytic frameworks.
Applications are due April 6, 2021. More information on the fellowship, eligibility, and application process is available on the Program’s website.
