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.
