The American Academy of Religion is pleased to announce the Collaborative Research Grants competition. Collaborative research grants are intended to stimulate cooperative research among scholars who have a focus on a clearly identified research project and for interdisciplinary work with scholars outside the field of religion.

The grants can provide funds for networking and communication, and to support small research conferences only if they are designed primarily to advance research. Conferences presenting papers that report on previous research will not be considered. Grant funds are not provided for research assistance, supplemental salary, stipends, released time, publication or subvention costs, transcription or translation costs, or travel to attend the AAR Annual Meeting. 

A group must apply through an AAR member designated as the Project Director. The Project Director must have maintained a full year’s AAR membership within the previous fifteen (15) months. Not all project collaborators need to be AAR members.

Project Directors must have completed the doctorate.
