Lilly Scholarships in Religion for Journalists

Journalists interested in taking college courses in religion or spirituality may apply for a scholarship program offered by the Religion Newswriters Association.


Journalists will receive scholarships for up to $5,000 each to study religion at any accredited college, university or seminary. Scholarships cover expenses including tuition, registration fees and books. Scholarships are funded by a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. to the Religion Newswriters Foundation, RNA's charitable arm.

Full-time print and broadcast journalists working at general circulation (or audience), non-religious media outlets are eligible to apply. Freelance journalists may be eligible but must demonstrate that both a majority of their time is spent and income is from religion news in secular media markets. RNA/RNF employees, selection committee members and their family members are ineligible.

Applications are reviewed quarterly (January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st), with decisions announced three weeks after deadlines. For more information and to download the application form, please visit our website.
