At ISCAST’s Conference on Science and Christianity (COSAC 2022), ISCAST will be awarding a small number of grants totalling $7,000 to students who have submitted proposals for science–faith projects. The major award is expected to be $4,000.
Each winner will also be given mentorship by an ISCAST Fellow or other senior academic.
We imagine the awards will predominantly go to university students (undergrad or postgrad), however, school students with a proposal are also encouraged to get in touch with ISCAST.
The kind of science–faith project is up to you!
Here are some ideas:
- Make a video or a series of short videos for use in schools or churches.
- Write a series of articles for the popular media.
- Propose a practical or theoretical research project investigating some aspect of science and faith.
- Publish a peer-reviewed article in Christian Perspectives on Science and Christianity.
- Make a series of podcast episodes.
- Write a short story or novel (perhaps of science fiction) that deals with both science and religion.
- Finalists will present their initial proposals at COSAC on 26 November 2022. Following each presentation will be a question/discussion time about the proposal with the judges. Winners will be announced at the end.

While the following guidelines are flexible, we expect
- that funding will be distributed to winners according to an agreed timeline to completion of the project;
- that the amount of any award will correlate with the expected time invested in the project;
- that projects will be completed within one year,
- that projects will serve the vision and mission of ISCAST.
The deadline is November 21 for proposals of projects that will be completed within a year.
