Luce Fund for Theological Education

The Luce Fund for Theological Education supports the development of new models of teaching and learning, research and publication, leadership development and educational program design. Structured as an open competition for seminaries, divinity schools, and other institutions that support graduate theological education, the Fund places central emphasis on the challenges of public engagement, within and across multiple religious traditions, and in a variety of different contexts.

Advancing Public Scholarship on Religion and Theology

Seeking to advance public understanding of religion and theology, the Henry Luce Foundation’s Theology Program invites inquiries for university-based projects that are centrally animated by faculty members based at research institutions.

Any doctoral degree-granting university in the United States is eligible to submit a letter of inquiry. Due no later than October 15, 2019, inquiries must be submitted through the Luce Foundation’s online portal. Grant amounts of $250,000 to $750,000 will be considered, and approved grants will typically fund projects that can be completed in less than 5 years.

Responsive Grants

The Luce Foundation's Theology program aims to advance understanding of religion and theology. Through grants to seminaries, divinity schools, and research universities, the program supports the work of scholars, cultivates the next generation of leaders, and promotes public engagement.
