Memorial Stipends

[Note: This award program is temporarily suspended, but will hopefully be restored in the future.]

The CBA awards twelve $4,000 stipends to students for each academic year, renewable for up to five years. Since these awards are renewable up to five years, the number of stipends available for a given year will vary.


The conditions for application are as follows:

  • Applicants must hold a tuition scholarship in a doctoral program of scientific, graduate biblical studies.
  • Preference will be shown to actual or prospective CBA members.
  • Awards will be made on the basis of need as well as of achievement and promise in biblical studies.
  • Applications do not carry over from year to year but may be resubmitted.
  • The application deadline is December 1.

For information on availability and for application forms, please contact the CBA Executive Secretary, The Catholic Biblical Association, 433 Caldwell Hall, Catholic University of America, Washington, DC 20064.
