Interfaith Curriculum Grants are back!

May 18, 2017
Submit your proposal by December 8, 2017. Winning submissions will be required to share completed syllabi, learning objectives, bibliographies, electronic resources, pedagogies, and assessment methods for us to post as interactive, open-source courses to encourage further interfaith learning and teaching.

Announcing a third round of Interfaith Curriculum Grants!

Following on the success of our previous grants supporting the development of interfaith courses in the U.S. and Canada, the Center announces the availability of another round of grants for graduate and undergraduate curricula, as well as for professional development programs. Three to five grants of $3,000 to $5,000 each will be awarded according to the recommendations of a jury of interfaith scholars.

Submit your proposal by December 8, 2017 to develop an interfaith course according to our Request for Proposals/Grant Criteria. Winning submissions will be required to share completed syllabi, learning objectives, bibliographies, electronic resources, pedagogies, and assessment methods for us to post as interactive, open-source courses to encourage further interfaith learning and teaching.

In May 2016 three grants were awarded; you can expect to find their course materials posted on our website in June of 2018. Materials from the 2013 grant winners can be found by clicking here.
