Fellowship Application

The Wendland-Cook Program in Religion and Justice at Vanderbilt Divinity school provides fellowships for masters and doctoral students. Students should apply by February 1st of each year to be considered for next school year. The typical amount awarded is $2000 per semester and can be renewed for up to 4 semesters. We also will provide financial support for approved Field Education placements for fellowship recipients if these placements correspond with the goals of the Program.

Applicants need to demonstrate interest in matters of religion and justice, with a focus on economic and ecological justice broadly conceived. Recipients are expected to enroll in the economic justice concentration at Vanderbilt Divinity School. They are strongly encouraged to take the course “Theology, Economics, and Labor” (DIV 6848) as early as possible during their course of study, as it is the foundational course for the Program.

Fellowship recipients will be required to work up to 10 hours per week for the Wendland-Cook Program in Religion and Justice during each semester in which they receive support. This work can be focused on a specific project of interest in consultation with the program leadership. The award is paid as a monthly stipend.
