Each year, the Center of Theological Inquiry welcomes a community of scholars whose research engages fundamental questions of global concern. CTI fellows in residence in 2015-16 will join one another and leading scientists in the study of life in the universe and the societal implications of this new research. Many disciplines and diverse individual research projects are relevant to understanding the science of life and how it becomes part of daily experience and shapes the human future. 

We welcome proposals from scholars in theology, religious studies, humanities, the arts, and natural and social sciences who see the connections between their own research and the science of astrobiology. The key requirements are a record of scholarly achievement, an original research proposal of high quality, and a commitment to the collaborative research community and sustained interdisciplinary discussion that daily work in the Center’s facilities makes possible.

The application window for the second year of this Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology, 2016-2017, will be announced here during September 2015.
