This year’s Guggenheim Fellowships, announced in April, were awarded to a diverse group of 178 scholars, artists, and scientists. Honorees were chosen from among nearly 3,000 applicants. Holt is one of only three 2014 Guggenheim Fellows whose projects are in the field of religion.

When Uriah Kim first visited the Graduate Theological Union as a prospective doctoral student in the spring of 1998, he sensed immediately that it was a special place, pulsing with the vitality of serious intellectual and spiritual discovery. “I remember meeting with GTU students and alumni on Holy Hill, and I could immediately sense the energy. The GTU is a place that stimulates your mind, your spirit—everything.”

As in past years, the GTU will be well represented at the Annual Meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature and not just in attendance.
At AAR, 19 faculty, 35 alumni, and 10 students will present, preside, and respond in 82 different sessions. At SBL, 5 faculty, 16 alumni, and 4 students will participate in 32 sessions. We could be a conference in ourselves.
