The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) is pleased to announce the 2015 competition for the Charles H. Townes Graduate Student Fellowship.

The purpose of the Townes Fellowship is to publicly recognize and offer modest financial support to doctoral students of the Graduate Theological Union who have demonstrated the clear ability to do highly promising research on issues related to theology and science.  The selection is based on academic excellence, and students in any area of the Graduate Theological Union doctoral program whose research focuses on theology and science are eligible to apply.

To apply please submit a copy of your curriculum vitae, a sample of your best writing in theology and science, and a statement of 1000 words about your doctoral research topic and methodology. Students must have completed the general comprehensive exams to be eligible to apply.

Please submit applications to Townes Fellowship Award, CTNS, 2400 Ridge Road, Berkeley, CA 94709, or by email to melissam at ctns.org.  Applications must be received by 5:00pm, Friday, April 17 to be considered for the award.
