Applications Accepted at U.S. Embassies to Study Religious Pluralism in America

November 21, 2013

As the United States grows in Interfaith activism, the government is beginning to support areas whereby international relations can be improved through immersion and study. One such opportunity pairs interested leaders of academic backgrounds with studies which will directly enhance interfaith understanding.
United States Department of State embassies operating in countries around the world offer six-week academic programming to scholars wishing to pursue short-term U.S. Studies within the American collegiate setting. The Study of the U.S. Institute for Scholars accepts applications in five research areas including Journalism and Media, U.S. Foreign Policy, U.S. Political Thought, Contemporary American Literature, and Religious Pluralism. While deadlines occur on different schedules throughout the year, Jamaican and Malaysian scholars are among the invited foreign-national groups at this time.

Young people from around the world gather to learn about interfaith harmony at the Parliament of the World’s Religions.

Student Leaders are also invited to a similarly structured program for six-week academic stays with the possibility to join the Fulbright program in a wider variety of disciplines such as:

Civic Engagement

Public Policy and Government Leadership
Religious Pluralism in the United States
