Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge and Online

Science touches every aspect of life – from how it begins and how it ends, to how it is lived in between. The same, of course, is true of religion. Looking the other way, every aspect of life touches science – from politics and power, to understanding the roots of creativity and communication. And the same, of course, is true of religion. This one-week course considers this rich interplay: how science, religion, medicine, and art mutually inform, illuminate, and enrich one another.

The course draws together expert speakers from across diverse disciplines to address these topics, though it does not assume that attendees have any formal training in any or all of the topics covered. Many of the speakers have a personal religious – often Christian – faith, though the talks are intended for those of any faith or none.

The course will be hosted in Lucy Cavendish College at the University of Cambridge, a short walk from the heart of historic Cambridge and the river Cam. Online participation, live streaming and catchup viewing will also be made available to support delegates in different timezones.

Who can apply for a scholarship?

For those who are committed to engage fully with this course but are unable to afford the regular or student registration rates above, we aim to provide a small number of highly subsidised scholarship places by competitive application, details below.

Scholarships for online attendance

In the case of genuine financial hardship and/or those from low-cost-of-living countries, subsidised scholarship places for online-only attendance are provided at two price levels:

£45 (e.g. low-income early career professional, part-time student or unwaged)

£10 (strictly for low-cost-of-living countries only)

Payment is required at application. Applicants will be judged in competition on both merit and need. Successful applicants will be notified. Unsuccessful applicants will be refunded in full. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until places are filled. Apply early to avoid disappointment.

NOTE: Faraday scholarships and bursaries are awarded by open competition. The application procedure requires the submission of sufficient information to make assessment equitable. The Faraday Institute emphasises that it cannot engage in any discussion or correspondence about why a scholarship or bursary application is unsuccessful.
