GTU Announces $10,000 Borsch-Rast Book Prize and Lectureship

The Graduate Theological Union is pleased to announce the establishment of the Borsch-Rast Book Prize and Lectureship, an annual award of $10,000 for an outstanding scholarly work written by a GTU graduate or faculty member. The endowment for the Borsch-Rast Prize comes from the sale of Trinity Press International (TPI), a venture dedicated to the publication of scholarly and often interdisciplinary theological studies. “Thanks to this endowment, the GTU is able to offer one of the highest (if not the highest) book prize award for authors and scholars in religion and theology,” says GTU Dean Uriah Kim.
