Call for Proposals

Statement of Purpose

Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to conducting independent research at the intersection of religion, culture, and public policy. Since its founding in 2009, PRRI’s mission has been to help journalists, scholars, pundits, thought leaders, clergy, and the general public better understand debates on public policy issues, and the important cultural and religious dynamics shaping American society and politics.

PRRI research has been cited in thousands of news stories and academic publications, and plays a leading role in deepening public understanding of the changing religious landscape and its role in shaping American politics. In addition to regular surveys conducted in partnership with The Atlantic and our annual flagship American Values Survey, PRRI conducts a number of major national surveys focused on a range of issues at the intersection of religion, values, and public life. Each year, the PRRI research team and a growing group of affiliated scholars also publish peer-reviewed articles based on our research in leading academic journals and books.
