The Center of Theological Inquiry fosters interdisciplinary dialogue between research scholars in theology and related fields in the sciences and humanities through its resident scholar program in Princeton. This program is designed for scholars who wish to pursue their research projects as part of a collaborative research community and who welcome the sustained interdisciplinary discussion that daily work in the Center’s facilities makes possible.

The Center of Theological Inquiry welcomes applications for the 2015-2016 academic year from research scholars (a) with their own research topic and proposal for a period in residence or (b) a research proposal that will contribute to the interdisciplinary topic: Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology.

The online application window for both types of research proposals will be open on the Center’s website from December 15, 2014 to January 31, 2015.

The resident academic year at the Center of Theological Inquiry runs from September 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016.  Applications for one semester in residence will be considered but preference is given to applications for the full nine months in residence. Successful applicants are provided with an office at the Center as their daily place of work and subsidized housing in Princeton.

Some fellowship awards in support of successful applicants will be available but scholars should also seek their own funding in support of a period in residence.
