Cognitive Science of Religion Grant Announced

Oxford's Ian Ramsey Centre to Award $800,000 in Total

The University of Oxford's Ian Ramsey Centre and the Centre for Anthropology and Mind are accepting applications for research proposals in the area of Cognitive Science of Religion and Theology ($800,000 to award in total).  Applications are invited from scholars of any nationality post-Masters level or equivalent and beyond.  We seek proposals for focused, one- or two-year projects that address either the evidential needs of the cognitive science of religion or explore the philosophical and theological implications of assumptions and findings in the field.

An initial round of awards will be made in summer 2008.  We anticipate awarding approximately 15 grants in this first round (including all four two-year grants in summer 2008) between June 2008 and May 2009.

For further information please visit the Cognition, Religion and Theology project page of the Ian Ramsey Centre website or the website of the University of Oxford's Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology.
