Funded by Lilly Endowment and based at Louisville Seminary, the Louisville Institute supports people who lead and study North American religious institutions, advancing scholarship that will contribute to church, academy, and wider society. LI grants and fellowships support three strategic constituencies: pastors; early career scholars; and senior researchers and scholars.
