Copied URL to clipboard

Duke students are invited to apply for the Chapel's C. Eric Lincoln Theology & Arts Fellowship, which comes with funding up to $2,000 to create a visual arts project and the opportunity to display it in Duke Chapel.

Applications are due November 30. Apply here.

The fellowship will be awarded to a student, or group of students, who demonstrate that their project will:

  • Express artistic creativity
  • Illuminate theological concepts
  • Explore personal spiritual committments
  • Engage with the themes of gender, race, and religion

The fellowship is named in honor of C. Eric Lincoln who was a professor of Religion and Culture at Duke from 1976 to 1993. His work is internationally recognized as an authority on the sociology of religion as it relates to race and ethnicity in the United States. His life of ministry models both the academic integrity and faith formation the Chapel’s student ministry also attempts to embody.
