For over 80 years, The Catholic Biblical Association of America has promoted, within a context of faith, scholarly study in Scripture and related fields through meetings of the association, publications, and support to those engaged in such studies.

Looking to the Future

CBA annually invites applications for the annual CBA's Verbum Emerging Scholars Fellowship. This is a graduate student award given to emerging scholars who show promise and appear likely to make significant contributions to the field of Biblical studies. The award enables Fellows to attend the Annual General Meeting of the CBA, to present their scholarship, and enjoy the company and conversation of scholars in the field.
