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.

The Center for Faith & Innovation is currently accepting applications for conference and research grants! Applications for CFI conference and research grants are reviewed on a rolling basis until grant funds are depleted.
