The Foundation's object is the advancement of further and higher education in Religious Education and Theology.
Grants are awarded to individuals for research and taught postgraduate qualifications in these fields; and to eligible organisations for related initiatives and facilities.
The Foundation does not finance buildings, or provide bursaries for institutions to administer; and it is precluded from the direct support of schools (although it does support teachers who are taking eligible studies).
The “Awards” area of this website contains details about the various awards that the Foundation makes and it also explains how to make an application. Please note that applications can only be made between January and 1st May each year. Grants are made for the following academic year.
