Templeton awards SCIO major grant for Oxford seminars

We are pleased to announce that the Templeton Religion Trust has awarded SCIO a grant of about £1 million to carry out an enhanced set of summer seminars aimed at developing interdisciplinary skills among faculty in the disciplines of science and religion.

The seminars, to be held in Oxford in July 2015 and 2016, will provide a significant opportunity for 25 faculty from member institutions of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities across the globe. The project will also provide funding for enriched opportunities for students on the home campuses and a shortened seminar for the presidents of participating campuses. All together the project aims to contribute to the developing dialogue in campuses on this most important field which is at the centre of so much attention and do so in a way which will help these universities enhance their campus climate so as to have significant impact.

Alister McGrath will join as the academic director for the project, and will be joined by Drs Stan Rosenberg, Michael Burdett, and John Roche who will manage this exciting new project.

See the initial program brochure for more info. Application information will be posted in summer 2014 with faculty applications due in the autumn.
