Announcing the 2021 LFP Book Award

The biennial Lilly Fellows Program Book Award honors an original and imaginative work from any academic discipline that best exemplifies the central ideas and principles animating the Lilly Fellows Program. These include faith and learning in the Christian intellectual tradition, the vocation of teaching and scholarship, and the history, theory or practice of the university as the site of religious inquiry and culture.

Single authored books or edited collections in any discipline, published in 2017 to 2020, are eligible.

Works considered for this year's award address the historical or contemporary relation of Christian intellectual life and scholarship to the practice of teaching as a Christian vocation or to the past, present, and future of higher education. Authors and editors may not nominate their own works.

A Prize of $3000 will be awarded at the Lilly Fellows Program National Conference at Boston College, October 8-11, 2021.

The committee will receive nominations of academic faculty, clergy, and others.  Authors or editors cannot nominate their own works.

Nomination deadline is March 1, 2021.
