Grant Winners

We offer many grants to support research involving philosophers of religion from underrepresented regions and religious traditions.

We are delighted to announce the following six winners of the 2021 English language support grant competition. The competition was conducted to support non-native English speaking authors who aim to publish their own papers on one or more of our project themes in leading international peer-reviewed journals in the English language. We will announce the 2022 competition in due course.
