Fellowship Program (2023-24)
About Our Program
The BibleProject Fellowship is an 8-month program, following a two-semester academic calendar. This opportunity is open to students currently enrolled in graduate or doctoral studies, as well as scholars with any level of experience who have completed a terminal degree.
Fellowship participants will be expected to:
Commit approximately 20-25 hours per week to the program
Attend weekly team meetings (virtually)
Travel to Portland once per semester for team retreat
About this Role
An aspiring fellow desires to contribute to the renewal and unity of the church through biblical studies and creative communication. Fellows will engage in research, writing, editing, and other content-creation activities, depending on skill and experience, and will engage in healthy dialogue around various theological topics.
Fellows will also learn the reading skills required to study Scripture as ancient Jewish meditation literature and what it means to read the Bible as a unified story that leads to Jesus. This will involve regular study of biblical texts in their original languages in a collaborative research environment.
What You’ll Be Doing
Fellows will work directly with the Scholar team on research projects that, in most cases, will later become BibleProject media and educational resources.
You will read and study Scripture in the literary paradigm used by its authors and editors.
Scholars and Fellows contribute to collective discussions and research projects, learning from one another as the team explores.
More specific responsibilities will be decided per individual based on the scholar’s interest, education, and skill.

What We Are Hoping For
