The International Center for the Sociology of Religion (ICSOR) is organizing the School of Higher Education in Sociology of Religion (SAFSOR) in Rome on December 27-30, 2017 in Rome. ICSOR is looking for interested researchers from the Arab region to join the program. The ICSOR Grant Program is intended to support interested researchers in their residence in Rome.
The International Center for the Sociology of Religion (ICSOR) Grant Program provides residence in Rome for researchers intending to carry out projects on the sociology of religion. The grants provided will fund initial research into hypotheses that have not been fully explored as yet. Research applications will be judged principally on the basis of the novelty of the hypotheses and the innovative approaches proposed, their direct relevance and applicability to the sociology of religion, their scientific quality and methodological strengths. ICSOR Grant Awardees will be required to provide progress reports concerning their work during the entire duration of their residency and present their findings at the end of their stay in Rome and/or through a report/article published no later than one year after the end of the grant.
