Out of Many Faiths: Common Ground and Modest Unity Grants

IFYC is pleased to partner with The Carver Project to offer “Out of Many Faiths: Common Ground and Modest Unity” grants to Christian faculty on any US-based campus.

Christian faculty working at non-Christian universities are uniquely positioned to lead and engage across difference, having two feet planted in the worlds of both church and university. Drawing upon the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love, Christian faculty can model dialogue and relationship across difference in the university environment, with colleagues, staff, and students of other faiths and of no faith. Learning and understanding how to partner effectively and discover common ground in the pluralistic environment of the university is an essential prerequisite to implementing these skills and practices in a broader society where the stakes are much higher.

With these goals in mind, and through generous support from the Pew Charitable Trust, The Carver Project (TCP) and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) are offering grants in the amounts of $750 and $2,000 to Christian faculty to lead activities on their campuses that explore the opportunities and tensions inherent in engaging religious diversity. Please see the Request for Proposals for more details and examples of grant activities.

Applications can be submitted beginning July 1, 2021. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and grantees will be notified of their award in a timely manner after their application has been submitted. Grant funds will go to support curricular and cocurricular initiatives on campus from August 2021 to June 2022.

Please contact Megan Johnson megan@ifyc.org with any questions pertaining to grant submission.
