- Established UU scholars who are cultivating the next generation of UU scholars and ministers.
To apply, submit the following:

- a research or dissertation proposal (750 words maximum);
- three letters of reference, including a letter from an individual familiar with the candidate's relationship with a Unitarian Universalist congregation or Unitarian Universalist related institution;
