IAAACT is a non-profit think-tank which aims to cultivate critical African American Christian thought among Black seminarians training for ministry, Black Christian scholars in the academy, and a theologically literate Black Christian public. The two student recipients will also take part in a spring think-tank symposium and be supported by IAAACT in the student's desired ministry endeavor and academic pursuit.
Besides hosting a weekly Christian Formation and Spiritual Renewal gathering for theological students, faculty and general public, IAAACT seeks to continue providing scholarship support for students pursuing religious and theological studies at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
