Supporting Interfaith Curricula

The Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations periodically awards three to five interfaith curriculum grants to scholars at Merrimack College and across North America.

The grants, which range from $3,000 to $5,000, support the development of interfaith courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level at institutions in the United States and Canada. Grants are awarded according to the recommendations of a jury of interfaith scholars.
