Racial Equity & Interfaith Cooperation Awards


In the wake of an election process that highlights deep racial divides in our nation, IFYC has committed to support engagement with and exploration of the intersection of racial equity and interfaith cooperation. We have designed the We Are Each Other’s curricular tracks to support interfaith leaders at the intersection of racial equity and interfaith cooperation. 

IFYC believes in the essential contributions of countless religious and philosophical traditions that affirm dignity and justice for every human being. As part of our commitment to expand work that engages the intersection of racial equity and interfaith cooperation, we are offering $1,000 awards to faculty, staff, and IFYC alum who are working and learning in this area. 

At this time, we are opening a second round of funding for faculty and staff at U.S.-based colleges and universities.
