Hartford Seminary proudly announces that scholarships are available for up to eight emerging peacemakers in the 2017-18 class of the International Peacemaking Program.
With long-established expertise in interfaith dialogue, Islamic studies, and Christian-Muslim relations, Hartford Seminary is at the forefront of training leaders for peacemaking between religions. The IPP, heading into its 14th year, is Hartford Seminary’s flagship scholarship program. Students and community activists from the United States and other countries where there is interreligious tension or conflict are invited to apply for one of a limited number of annual IPP scholarships.
Fellows in the International Peacemaking Program spend an academic year studying interfaith dialogue, conflict transformation, and leadership skills. They live in intentionally interfaith housing on campus, spend time in local faith communities, and receive practical skill-building training to enhance their capacity as peacemakers.

We are grateful for the vision and the generosity of the individuals and organizations that support this program.
Plowshares Institute will support two Plowshares Peacemaking Fellows for 2017-18. Candidates from countries where Plowshares, which is now closed but continues its work through Hartford Seminary, most recently focused its peacemaking education work—South Africa, China and northern India—are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations will support two American Christian scholars as Hartford Seminary Peacemaking Fellows.
Donations from the family of Trudie Prior, a Hartford Seminary trustee, will support two Jewish scholars. International and American Jews are invited to apply for Jewish Scholar Fellowships.
The E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation has donated funds for a scholar with a commitment to international religious peacemaking who also identifies as LGBT.
An additional international peacemaker will be funded by a donation from Lynn and John Fulkerson. Lynn Fulkerson has a Master of Arts from the Seminary and is a founder of the Interreligious Eco-Justice Network. John Fulkerson is a knee and shoulder surgeon with Orthopedic Associates of Hartford and past president of the Litchfield Land Trust. The Fulkersons have been longtime supporters of the IPP.
With the need greater than ever to prepare peacemakers and promote interreligious understanding, the Seminary welcomes contributions to the International Peacemaking Program.
