The Westar Fellows are a community of academics committed to engaging in collaborative, cumulative scholarship on questions about religion that matter in society.
Membership as a Westar Fellow is open to:
- Scholars with advanced academic degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) in religious studies or related disciplines from accredited universities worldwide.
- Published authors who are recognized authorities in the field of religion (by special invitation only).
More than 200 Fellows have participated in the Jesus Seminar and other Westar projects since 1985. At various stages of the projects, different Fellows have been involved in the research and deliberations.
