The American Association for the Advancement of Science has awarded grants to ten Christian seminaries in the USA for pilot programs integrating science into core theological curricula. The program will see each school developing teaching which brings science into the core of seminary theological education, and this will be complemented by campus-wide activities related to the courses.
An annoucement in October 2014, identified the following institutions as award recipients:
Andover Newton Theological School – Newton Centre, Massachusetts
Catholic University of America – Washington, D.C.
Columbia Theological Seminary – Decatur, Georgia
Concordia Seminary – St. Louis, Missouri
Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg – Pennsylvania
Howard University School of Divinity – Washington, D.C.
Jesuit School of Theology at Santa Clara University – Berkeley, California
Multnomah Biblical Seminary – Portland, Oregon
Regent University School of Divinity – Virginia Beach, Virginia
Wake Forest University School of Divinity – Winston-Salem, N.C.

The project is supported with a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
