Fellows Programme, KAICIID, Vienna, Austria. Deadline: varies by program (May or June 2021).
Exchange programmes across religious educational institutions only exist within a few countries around the world. In most countries, exchange does not exist due either to a lack of interest, a lack of resources, and/or a lack of diversity of religious institutions. KAICIID recognises the integral part of knowledge-sharing among religious education institutions that train future leaders. The Centre aims to connect these institutions and their select teachers to a network of an active transnational community of interreligious dialogue practitioners in order to advocate for peace. The KAICIID International Fellows Programm seeks to not only address these problems but also to network institutions that train religious leaders transnationally so that interreligious dialogue can become a common feature of any religious training, whatever the religion might be.
All documents for the 2021/2022 Latin American and the Caribbean Regional Fellows Programme must be submitted by 30 May 2021. All documents for the 2022 KAICIID International Fellows Programme must be submitted by 10 June 2021.

Junior fellows receive a grant in the form of a full-salaried post at ETH Zurich. The fellows will be able to pursue individual projects and become part of the Collegium’s international network and fellow community. The Collegium’s work and meeting rooms, its new art and exhibition spaces and its various opportunities for exchange and interaction offer ideal conditions for a thriving culture of dialogue and a creative environment for innovative academic and artistic projects.
Call for proposals, 2021 Fellowship program: When family, work and community merge: Learning and growing from the pandemic experience, Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM) Institute, Oracle, AZ, USA. Deadline: May 1, 2021.
The CMM Institute is seeking innovative proposals for projects or studies which use CMM concepts to reflect on what we learned from the process of responding to a global pandemic, and how we might apply what we have learned to bridge fragmented social realities and identities that have been made more visible by this experience. Given this year’s CMMI focus on family systems, they have a particular interest in proposals which include circular questioning, cosmopolitan communication, and other uses of the CMM body of theory which engage structural change in thinking around patterns of social engagement.
