GTU Announces ICP Jewish Studies Fellowship

New fellowship covers full tuition for the Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy for students affiliated with the Center for Jewish Studies

The Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies (CJS) at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) is pleased to offer a fellowship for students in the GTU’s Interreligious Chaplaincy Program (ICP) who are affiliated with the Center for Jewish Studies. The first of its kind, the GTU’s Interreligious Chaplaincy Program equips leaders to practice spiritual care among diverse populations. The ICP Jewish Studies Fellowship, which is made possible through the generous donation of the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture, offers a scholarship that covers tuition for all required courses for the Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy.

Eligibility: Applicants should be pursuing a Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy and must be affiliated with the Center for Jewish Studies. For more information about applying for the ICP Jewish Studies Fellowship, please contact CJS Director Dr. Deena Aranoff, or Interreligious Chaplaincy Program Director Dr. Kamal Abu-Shamsieh.

Applying for the Interreligious Chaplaincy Program: Students interested in pursuing the combined MA and certificate should apply to the GTU MA program, indicating their interest in pursuing the Certificate in Interreligious Chaplaincy along with an MA in Jewish Studies. Students seeking to enter the certificate program who already possess a qualifying master’s degree, or who are currently enrolled in the MA program at the GTU in Jewish Studies, should use the "certificate" section of the application. Apply to the Interreligious Chaplaincy Program now.

The GTU would like to thank the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture for its generous support of the ICP Jewish Studies Fellowship.
