Scholarly Vision

The Center exists to coordinate and provide leadership for the project of advancing and improving intentional Christian scholarship at Calvin College. Its purpose is to promote rigorous, creative, and articulate scholarship that addresses important theoretical and practical issues. To achieve this purpose, the Center provides three types of grants:

Major Grants

In each academic year the Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship awards grants to a variable number of Scholars drawn from both within and from outside the Calvin College faculty. Scholars from outside the Calvin College faculty must apply as part of a team. Teams of Scholars shall have at least one member of the Calvin College faculty. The coordinator of such a team shall be a member of the Calvin College faculty. Apply for a Major Grant

Working Groups

The Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship funds several Working Groups for faculty, staff, and alumni each academic year. Each Calvin Center Working Group is composed of 8-15 participants, from a variety of academic disciplines or professional fields, who meet monthly for one year to discuss common readings and to explore from interdisciplinary perspectives a particular issue, problem, or topic.
