Regional Scholars

Regional Scholar Awards

The Regional Scholars’ Program has been developed by the Society of Biblical Literature’s Council of Regional Coordinators to recognize promising younger scholars in the field of biblical studies. Its objective is to encourage their intellectual development through a mentoring program and to provide practical assistance in securing a place to present their work at the Society’s Annual Meeting. Information on the application process is available from the Regional Coordinator of each region.

Regional Scholar Award Program Policy

More information on opportunities to present at regional meetings and applying for a Regional Scholar Award is available on the webpages of individual regional meetings.
