Hi, I am writing to ask you to share this announcement about five major grant and fellowship opportunities worth $900,000 with your faculty and graduate student colleagues. Could you please forward this email to them and anyone else you know who studies global religion or might possibly be interested in incorporating global religion into their current research and teaching?

Thank you,
