Heather Curtis was awarded a grant from The Louisville Institute's "Sabbatical Grant for Researchers" program for the Fall of 2013

The Louisville Institute's "Sabbatical Grant for Researchers" program enables scholars to conduct a major study that can contribute to the vitality of Christianity in North America. Grants of up to $40,000 support year-long research projects that address Christian faith and life, pastoral leadership, and/or religious institutions. The Louisville Institute is funded by the Religion Division of Lilly Endowment and based at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary (Louisville, Kentucky). The Institute's fundamental mission is to enrich the religious life of North American Christians and to encourage the revitalization of their institutions, by bringing together those who lead religious institutions with those who study them, so that the work of each might inform and strengthen the other.
