Gifts to Help Fund the Annual Russell Family Research Fellowship

For over twenty years, the annual Russell Fellowship in Religion and Science has enabled senior scholars in the field of theology and the natural sciences to visit the Graduate Theological Union and CTNS to conduct research, teach courses, and present public lectures. These visiting scholars and research fellows often contribute to CTNS publications give a presentation to a CTNS/GTU graduate course, and present original research in a day-long conference. These events are attended by professionals and graduate students as well as those in the general public who are interested in academic discourse on theology and science.

Your gift will help make this annual fellowship possible into the future.

The annual Russell Fellowship in Religion and Science was created in memory of John K. Russell (1896-1958). Mr. Russell, born of Italian immigrants, was an industrial engineer and humanitarian. Since its founding in 1981, Mrs. J. K. (Arden) Russell played a key role in supporting the vision and mission of CTNS research as the primary benefactor along with the Russell family. Over the past two decades her gifts totaled over $150,000 which served to support these annual fellowships. Upon Arden’s passing in May 2004, the executive committee of the CTNS Board of Directors established a restricted fund for the Russell Fellowship in her honor and memory. Then in 2015 the J.K. Russell Research Fellowship in Religion and Science was renamed the Russell Family Fellowship in Religion and Science to honor the contributions of the Russell Family as a whole to this annual Fellowship.

We invite you to join with us in making a donation towards this fund which may be mailed to CTNS, earmarked "Russell Fellowship Fund" or by using the on-line donation button below.
