These awards are designed to deepen student’s practical knowledge and understanding about religion, conflict and peacebuilding. Activities that can be funded through this program range from participation in reputable, internationally-oriented training programs in religion, conflict and peacebuilding to research activities that advance understanding of the intersections of religion and conflict. Award funds may be used to cover the costs of participation in programs, including tuition and airfare, or to underwrite the cost of research for an honor’s or master’s thesis, doctoral dissertation, or related research project, including travel, summer support, or archival research.
These scholarships aim to provide students with a better understanding of international relations through experiencing different cultures and other ways of living during study abroad experiences.
