The Sabbatical Grant for Researchers (SGR) offers grants up to $40,000 to support academic sabbatical leave for projects about Christian faith and life, the practice of ministry, religious trends and movements, Christian and other faith-based institutions and religion and social issues. Louisville Institute is especially interested in projects that demonstrate a desire to bridge the North American church and academy.
SGR is most often used to supplement an existing semester sabbatical with a second term or semester. Typical applicants are fully employed in accredited academic institutions and are eligible for a full year leave from teaching and administrative responsibilities. Grants awarded in the 2024 cycle will fund sabbaticals taking place during the 2024-2025 academic year or during the 2025 calendar year.
