Claremont, Calif. (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Global unrest and the mounting need for leaders to seek out non-violent solutions to conflict have prompted Claremont Lincoln University to set up a new scholarship fund to help educate international change-makers for peace.
The Global Peacemakers Fellowship Program offers fully funded fellowships in the amount of $15,000 to professionals to pursue a master’s degree in Interfaith Action at Claremont Lincoln University. Students may choose from several tracks that include designing a final capstone project that promotes international peace in the Middle East, South Asia or Africa through the practice of interfaith engagement.
The M.A. in Interfaith Action degree is intended for leaders in faith-based organizations, religious communities, nonprofit organizations and other public arenas in which religious multiplicity can be a source of conflict, yet also has the potential to become a rich resource for positive change.
The Fellowship Committee encourages applications from international students and students with interdisciplinary research interests in interfaith relations, peace and conflict resolution, religious studies, international affairs, and other closely related fields of study.
“The Interfaith Action program is committed to leading the way in educating and training future peacemakers to apply best practices to negotiate and reconcile the world’s most challenging conflicts,” said Darrell Ezell, Director of Interfaith Action.
