Bloggers Needed: Seminary and Religion Grad Students
By Justus Baird
September 14, 2012
Our friends at State of Formation are recruiting a new crop of bloggers for the year. Think you have what it takes to write about religion and current events in an accessible, smart way? Then consider applying.
Call for Contributing Scholars at State of Formation
State of Formation is now accepting applications and nominations for Contributing Scholars. State of Formation is a community conversation between young leaders in formation. Together, a cohort of seminarians, rabbinical students, graduate students and the like – the future religious and moral leaders of tomorrow – will work to redefine the ethical discourse today, particularly as it is used to refract current events and personal experiences. This initiative is supported by a partnership between the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions (CPWR), Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue (JIRD), Hebrew College, and Andover Newton Theological School.
Contributing Scholars to State of Formation will be able to take advantage of the numerous benefits to participating in the State of Formation Contributing Scholars Fellowship. In addition to being recognized as a Contributing Scholar by JIRD and CPWR, they may be eligible for travel grants and may have their work featured in articles on additional platforms like CPWR's website, PeaceNext, The Huffington Post, Interfaith Youth Core, Pluralism Project, Interfaith Observer, and Tikkun.
Nominees should be currently enrolled in a seminary, rabbinical school, graduate program, or another institution for theological or philosophical formation -- or up to three years out of their graduate program in a professional setting. (On rare occasions, exceptions will be made to these guidelines in order to increase the diversity of the writers.) Contributors should be able to commit to post monthly on the forum while showing respect to others from different traditions.
Does this describe you or an emerging leader you know? Please take a moment to fill out the brief nomination form. Nominations for the fall are due September 30, 2012 and will be accepted on a rolling basis. More information is available here.
