As of January 2021, the Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International Affairs is no longer accepting unsolicited inquiries. We encourage applicants interested in the topic of religion in global perspective to consult the grantmaking guidelines of the Luce Foundation’s Religion and Theology Program.
The Henry R. Luce Initiative on Religion in International Affairs aims to provide intellectual leadership, develop new paradigms for research and teaching, create new resources and networks, and enhance public understanding of and discussion about religion in the international sphere.
Fellowships in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs
Launched in 2015, the Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism & International Affairs (RJIA) is designed to foster new connections between scholars and journalists covering international affairs. Fellowships are available to scholars pursuing research on any aspect of religion in an international context. The program is administered by the American Council of Learned Societies on behalf of the Luce Foundation.
