The Lake Institute on Faith & Giving is pleased to announce the 2024-2025 Lake Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship for doctoral students whose research engages issues at the intersection of religion and philanthropy or faith and generosity. While the intersection of faith and giving is key to our mission, we are glad to receive a broad range of proposals that consider these topics together. 

Lake Institute helps to promote the emerging field of faith and giving by supporting the work of scholars. This one-year fellowship is given annually to support the final year of dissertation writing for a doctoral candidate at a U.S. graduate school.

The application deadline is January 31, 2024.
