The International Peacemaking Program (IPP) has been Hartford Seminary’s flagship scholarship program for more than fifteen years. Emerging leaders with undergraduate degrees 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. 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.
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.
Upon completion of the required 18-credits (6 full courses), all scholarship recipients receive a Graduate Certificate in either Interfaith Dialogue or Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations. Fellows additionally design a leadership project, to be implemented back in their home country, as part of their program requirements. The International Peacemaking Program is designed to be completed within one academic year of full-time study, and it is expected that upon completion, participants return home to put new skills and knowledge into practice.
Hartford Seminary’s peacemaking scholarships include tuition, books, travel and housing.
