The Grawemeyer Award in Religion
The Louisville Grawemeyer Award honours highly significant contributions to religious and spiritual understanding. By “religion” we mean, to paraphrase a classic definition by William James, the feelings, acts and experiences of humans insofar as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they consider the divine. The purpose of the Award is to honour and publicize annually creative and constructive insights into the relationship between human beings and the divine, and ways in which this relationship may inspire or empower human beings to attain wholeness, integrity or meaning, either individually or in community.
This award is granted by both the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and the University of Louisville to those who have presented ideas with the potential to bring about change in the world through religion.
Value: The Grawemeyer Award in Religion is accompanied by a prize of $100,000.
Eligibility: Any work (book, address, essay, etc.) presented or published in 2016 or subsequently will be eligible for consideration.
