Pastoral Study Project Grants Available
The Louisville Institute offers pastoral leaders the gift of time and the resources to investigate issues related to Christian life, faith, and ministry. Through its Pastoral Study Project program (PSP), the Institute enables pastoral leaders to bracket daily work routines in order to pursue a pressing and significant question for the life of faith.
Grants of up to $15,000 support independent or collaborative study projects - projects that privilege pastoral perspectives and rhythms and honor grassroots research conducted by skilled clergy. PSP grantees may use a variety of platforms to share what they learn with a wider audience, extending their leadership in ways that can benefit the broader church and culture in North America.
