Journalists and editors are eligible for $5,000 scholarships to study Islam, religion and politics, war and theology.
RELIGION | NEWSWRITERS is inviting journalists to apply for the Lilly Scholarships in Religion Program, which give full-time journalists up to $5,000 to take any college religion courses at any accredited institution at any time.
More than 200 people have already taken advantage of RELIGION | NEWSWRITERS Lilly Scholarships in Religion Program for Journalists.
Topics reporters have studied include: Islamic Movements, God & Politics, Christianity and Culture, Religious Tradition and Scientific Inquiry, Buddhism and Science, Violence and Liberation, Religion and Medicine and many more.
“The course (Intro to Biblical Studies) not only encouraged me to look at the Bible strictly from a historical and literary perspective, but also forced me to dismiss some of the ‘Biblical truths’ I learned as a child,” said Amie McLain, WRIC-TV8 in Richmond, Va.
Scholarships cover tuition, books, registration fees, parking and other course-related costs.
The deadline for applications is Oct. 1.
