Interfaith Youth Core

Grant Summary

$250,000 over 24 months to support Interfaith Youth Core’s collaboration with higher education institutions in fostering interfaith cooperation to prepare students for leadership in a religiously diverse world. IFYC will target 10 to 15 institutions that redesign and launch course sequences linking the liberal arts to professional preparation in medicine, business, and education through the vehicle of interfaith studies. IFYC will support sub-awardees bridging the liberal arts and the professions through an array of workshops, site visits, and conference calls. IFYC will also collate curricular and instructional resources developed by participating faculty for broad dissemination through case studies, sample syllabi and assignments, webinars, and published articles. Additionally, IFYC will publicize the work through its own conferences.
