Fifth annual Templeton-Cambridge fellowships awarded to 10 noted journalists
Date:3/18/2009

NEW YORK, MARCH 19 Ten prominent journalists from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada have been selected for the fifth annual TempletonCambridge Journalism Fellowships in Science & Religion. Inaugurated in 2004, the fellowships include a program of research and scholarship at the University of Cambridge in England. The 2009 fellows were announced today by the New York office of the TempletonCambridge Fellowships, which are funded by the John Templeton Foundation of West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.

In the fellowship program, a diverse group of eminent journalists examine key areas in the broad field of science and religion through independent research as well as seminars and discussion groups, led by some of the world's foremost physicists, cosmologists, philosophers, and theologians, at the University of Cambridge. Fellows are provided a $15,000 stipend, a book allowance, and travel expenses.

"The fellowships provide some of the top journalists worldwide with an opportunity to engage in a rigorous and wide-ranging examination of the field of science and religion," says TempletonCambridge Fellowships Co-director Fraser Watts, Reader in Theology and Science, University of Cambridge. "With the deeper understanding that they gain through the fellowship program, these journalists will be better able to promote a more informed public discussion of science and religion."

The 2009 fellows represent a broad sweep from the field of journalism, a reflection, the program's organizers say, of the extent of the current interest in science and religion. Included are journalists, editors, and correspondents from the Washington Post, Globe and Mail, Dallas Morning News, Daily Mail, Time, American Prospect, Fox News, and BBC Radio.

The TempletonCambridge Journalism fellows named today are:

  • Edwin Cartlidge, Freelance Journalist
  • Rod Dreher, Editorial Columnist, Dallas Morning News
  • Joel Garreau, Rep
