Deadline Approaching for Journalism Fellowships in Science & Religion

Deadline: Saturday, December 8, 2007.

The Templeton-Cambridge Journalism Fellowships in Science & Religion, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, enable up to ten print, broadcast, or online journalists to pursue an intensive two-month course of study in issues of science and religion. The program includes three weeks of seminars at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. featuring eminent authorities in the field. Fellows will be paid a stipend in addition to travel expenses to Cambridge.

The fellowship seeks to promote a deeper understanding and a more informed public discussion of the interface of science and religion. Potential areas of study include comparison of the methods of science and religion, neuroscience, cosmology, quantum uncertainty, and spirituality and health.

Applicants must demonstrate an interest in the field, originality of thought displayed in previous writings, and a superior record of journalistic achievement. The awards are open to journalists with a minimum of three years’ experience, though priority will be given to mid-career and senior journalists. The fellowship program is looking for journalists who show promise of making a significant contribution to the public’s understanding of the complex issues in the field.
