The Louise Farmer Boyer Chair in Biblical Studies, which supports teaching and research in the area of Biblical Greek, Christian Origins, and the world of the Bible;

The Ronald Nelson Smith Chair in Classics and Christian Origins, which supports teaching and research in the area of Christian Origins, Early Judaism, and Religions of the Graeco-Roman World.

The above endowments also support two named research fellowships: The Harry Joshua Leon Research Fellowship and The Abraham J. Malherbe Research Fellowship, as well as research appointments to the Institute as William Shive Fellows.
