Conference and Research Grants

Small Group of People Listening to a Speaker

CFI grants provide conference and research funding for Wheaton College faculty. This program exists to support faculty seeking to provide high quality mentoring for students by helping them learn how to apply disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and Christian liberal arts knowledge to a complex problem in society.

Conference Grant

The CFI Conference Grant provides funds for faculty and students to attend conferences that will deepen vocation engagement for students. The funds are provided so faculty members mentor students and students can build vocational networks.

Research Grant

The CFI Research Grant supports work that applies disciplinary, interdisciplinary, or Christian liberal arts knowledge to a complex problem in the marketplace. CFI invites proposals for faculty and undergraduate projects that apply disciplinary or interdisciplinary knowledge to real-world problems; explore vocational opportunities associated with academic disciplines; or advance our understanding of the Christian liberal arts as preparation for Christian vocation.

2019-2020 application dates to be announced.
