CCD Grants for the Promotion of Biblical Scholarship and Biblical Literacy

PART I: Guidelines

Purpose of the CCD Grants

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) seeks to promote Catholic biblical literacy and Catholic biblical interpretation by providing financial assistance for specific projects advancing these goals. Funding for these grants comes from the royalties received from the publication of the New American Bible and its derivative works.

Areas of Pastoral Interest and Exclusions

The CCD will accept applications for grants that address the following pastoral areas:

  • Biblical Scholarship (particularly original research by Catholic scholars)
  • Archaeological Research
  • Pastoral and Catechetical Programs
  • Bible Education in Seminaries
  • Continuing Biblical Education of Clergy

No funds shall be made available for general educational scholarships, endowments, and loans, or for events, activities, debts, or costs incurred in the past. Apart from exceptional circumstances, requests to cover financing for more than 12 months will not be considered, though annual requests may be made for ongoing projects.
