BU School of Theology announces a New Networking Opportunity:
Application Deadline: March 22, 2013
The Russell Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies builds bridges between Christian, Jewish, and other religious traditions by providing the next generation of religious leaders with a comprehensive understanding of and dedication to interfaith issues. Applicants of all faiths and backgrounds from around the world who have a demonstrated interest in Interreligious Studies are encouraged to apply.
The Fellowship offers priests and members of the laity an opportunity to study at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum), in Rome, to obtain a Certificate in Interreligious Studies. The Certificate allows those who are not qualified for entrance into the License program at the Angelicum the opportunity to explore various aspects of interreligious issues at a Pontifical University.
The award provides one year of financial support for Russell Berrie Fellows, covering tuition, a modest living stipend and book allowance, examination fees, and travel to and from the recipient's home country.
Interested applicants can join a live webinar at 11:00 a.m. CET on March 7 by registering here. Further information, including the application form, can be found on the Russell Berrie Fellowship website.
