Support the Charles H. Townes
Graduate Student Fellowship
CTNS teaching programs are carried out primarily at the Graduate Theological
Union (GTU) in Berkeley, California, a consortium of nine
Protestant and Catholic seminaries with a doctoral program
in areas such as theology and ethics, and a cluster of affiliated
centers such as CTNS. Here, CTNS offers courses at the doctoral
and seminary levels in order to provide future clergy and
university or seminary faculty with a complex understanding
of this important interdisciplinary work. Robert John Russell
serves as both the Founder and Director of CTNS and as Professor
of Theology and Science at the GTU. He and other
CTNS-related GTU faculty regularly work with a variety of
doctoral and M.A. students as well as seminary students drawn
from all nine member schools of the GTU consortium. Many of
our former doctoral students have become tenured in seminaries
and universities nationally.
Each year a growing number of students seek admission to the GTU doctoral
and M.A. program with a particular commitment to studying theology and
science. However, to compete with other campuses for top graduate students we
need to be able to offer financial support packages that allow our students to
concentrate on their studies and also provide funds for their research
projects during the three to six years they spend working towards their M.A.
or Ph.D. degree. A Student Fellowship will be awarded
competitively on the basis of the student's proven academic
ability, with funds drawn from the financial earnings of the
