Lilly Scholarships for religion journalists announced, deadline soon

Are you a journalist with religion as your beat? You might qualify for cash to broaden your knowledge.

The Religion Newswriters Association, through its Lilly Scholarships for Journalists program, is offering up to $5,000 to American or Canadian journalists to take religion courses at accredited institutions.

“Through education,” the RNA website explains, ” reporters can build knowledge about religious history, trends, training, theology, doctrine and scriptures. By attending courses in their communities, journalists can expand their knowledge of religion, resulting in reporters who are more sensitive to the impact and nuances of faith or develop their personal spirituality.”

The deadline to apply for the next round of grants is October 1. Click here for all the details.
