Applying to the Young Scholars Program

Scholars eligible to apply are those who have launched their careers within the last seven years and who are working in a subfield of the area of religion in North America, broadly understood. Scholars are selected with the understanding that they will commit to the program for all seminar dates. Participants are expected to produce a course syllabus, with justification of teaching approach, and a publishable research article over the course of their seminars.

Applicants must submit (a) a curriculum vitae; (b) three letters of reference directly supporting their application to the YSAR program (portfolios with generic reference letters are not accepted); and (c) a 700-word essay indicating why they are interested in participating and describing their current and projected research and teaching interests.

The application process for the 2016-2017 YSAR program is now closed.
