Wabash lands $6.2M grant from Lilly Endowment

Wabash College is getting a $6.2 million grant to boost a center's efforts to support professors who teach religious studies or theology.

The three-year Lilly Endowment grant will allow the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion to continue offering workshops, off-site support and new initiatives through 2015.

The Journal & Courier reported the center founded in 1996 at the private Crawfordsville school has received all of its more than $40 million in funding from the Indianapolis-based foundation. The center seeks professors from other schools to teach courses on various topics.

In the past 15 years, 900 faculty members have taken part in workshops and seminars at the center. It's also awarded nearly $12 million worth of grants to more than 275 institutions and 500 individuals.
