With the help of generous donors, the International Peacemaking Program has expanded to include scholarships designated for two Jewish students in 2017-18.
“The IPP program is a unique educational framework that combines interfaith engagement in both classroom and residential settings with practical training in peacemaking skills. Having Jewish students in the program promises to bring the wisdom of the Jewish tradition into the mix, enriching both the Jewish participants and their Christian and Muslim peers,” said Prof. Yehezkel Landau, retired Associate Professor of Interfaith Relations.
International and American Jews with demonstrated experience in and potential for interfaith dialogue and leadership are invited to apply for places in the International Peacemaking Program designated for Jewish Scholar Fellowships. Participation in the program assumes a commitment to return home and put newly acquired skills to use. The application process is the same as for all applicants to the International Peacemaking Program.
