Tight Competition for Evolution & Christian Faith Funds
Last month we introduced the aim and scope of the new Evolution & Christian Faith (ECF) grants program. In short, this program will give away $3.5 million for research and projects that address theological and philosophical questions commonly voiced by Christians about evolutionary creation.
The deadline for submitting pre-proposals was June 15. Due to the large response, we expect the decision-making process to be difficult.
A panel of highly respected scholars and church leaders with expertise in diverse disciplines will now review each pre-proposal. On August 1, successful applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal to be completed by October 1, 2012. Awards will be announced in early December.
