Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life
Each year the Boisi Center provides an intellectual home for visiting scholars working on significant projects related to religion and public life. Visiting scholars participate in the intellectual life of the Center, which includes numerous public events, and may have an opportunity to present their own research as well. For more information about the visiting scholars program, or to apply, please see the application information.
