The Office of Vocation & Ministry announces Faculty Vocation Grants for the Academic Year 2008-2009. Two types of grant funding are available:
1) The OVM Faculty Vocation Grants invite Orthodox Christian full time faculty with a terminal degree in their chosen field (PhD, ThD) to apply for up to $4000 in grant funding. Part-time or adjunct faculty may apply for up to $2000.
2) The OVM Faculty Vocation Mini-Grants invite Hellenic College faculty to apply for up to $500 to add a vocation-related project, event, or materials to an existing course.
These grants are made possible through a sustainability grant Hellenic College received from the Lilly Endowment Inc. as part of their Programs for the Theological Exploration of Vocation initiative (www.ptev.org) and through the support of generous OVM donors. The faculty grants support the goals and vision of the Lilly Endowment for theological exploration of vocation by inviting Orthodox Christian faculty to (a) examine the relationship of their Orthodox faith to the scholarly and teaching vocation and (b) to teach and mentor students in the vocational arena.
