Hartford Seminary is thrilled to announce that its International Peacemaking Program (IPP) will expand for 2016-17 with the help of generous donors to include a scholarship designated for a Jewish student.
“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, Associate Professor of Interfaith Relations.
Participants in the International Peacemaking Program are college graduates who study interfaith dialogue, conflict transformation, and leadership skills. They live in intentionally interfaith housing on campus, spend time in local faith communities, and receive training in public speaking and engagement.
Upon completion of the required 18-credits (six full courses taken in one academic year), all scholarship recipients receive a Graduate Certificate in either Interfaith Dialogue or Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations. Fellows additionally conceive and implement a leadership project as part of their program requirements. Peacemaking scholarships include tuition, books, travel to and from Hartford Seminary, and housing.
Those interested in the scholarship for Jewish students should contact IPP Director Phoebe Milliken at email@example.com or 860-509-9552.
