In the emerging field of faith and philanthropy

Lake Institute helps to promote the emerging field of faith and philanthropy through multiple fellowship opportunities. We support graduate students through Graduate Assistantships at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy as well as an annual dissertation scholarship. We promote the work of young and established scholars through research collaborations and workshops on issues in the field. We continue to strive to make our Professional Development affordable to as many leaders as possible through raising scholarship support.

Lake Institute Network of Emerging Scholars (LINES)

LINES 2015 cohort

Since its inception, Lake Institute has funded a doctoral dissertation fellowship and an Endowed Lake Scholar to help identify and support the work of emerging and established scholars in this evolving field. As a continuation of our work, the inaugural LINES conference was held April 12-13, 2015.

The LINES gathering served as an important medium to continue to create, foster, and sustain an interdisciplinary field of scholarly research focusing on the broad relationship between religion and philanthropy. In addition to the time set aside to engage each participant's project proposal or research summary, there were several vibrant conversations about the state of research in this field, intentional opportunities for peer conversations, and the importance of collaboration.
