We are happy to announce that two grants of up to $3500 are available to host undergraduate events in science and religion. Closing date for applications is October 12th, 2018. Outcomes will be announced on October 26th, 2018. We welcome applicants from all Colleges and Universities! Events should be completed prior to June 1, 2019. 

What kind of events can i organize?

You are free to propose any event which helps undergraduate students to develop their understanding of the relationship between science and religion. 

Examples of such events could include, but would not be limited to:

  • External speaker program
  • Short course in Science and Religion
  • Workshop in Science and Religion
  • Undergraduate organised outreach and public education projects. 

Unfortunately, members of the University of Pennsylvania are not eligible to apply for these grants, but we welcome you to collaborate with us in other ways! Please contact us directly with your ideas.

How can I apply?

You will need to fill out the application form online, upload a 1-page description of your proposed event, and a 1-page proposed budget. Your description should include titles of any talks that will be given, a brief description of the topics that will be covered, and should explain how the event will lead undergraduates to have better understanding of the compatibility between Science and Religion. Please feel free to include any additional details that you think are relevant, keeping in mind the assessment criteria below. Your 1-page budget should explain how you will spend the money and include details of any co-sponsor contributions or additional funding. 

how will this be judged?

Proposals will be judged on the strength of previous programming and the ability to contribute additional funding. Preference will be given to proposals which align with topics covered in the Magi Project. Please review our web page for information on previous Magi Project events.
