The Center for Islam and Religious Freedom (CIRF) is offering Travel Scholarships for students to attend the “Washington DC Immersion” as part of the Religious Freedom Center’s semester-long courses that blend online learning with a three-day conference at the Newseum. The immersions will take place at the Newseum in Washington, DC from October 16-19 for the Fall 2017 semester and from March 19-21 for the Spring 2018 semester.
These CIRF Travel Scholarships are made possible by a grant from Templeton Religion Trust.
All students newly admitted to the Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 semesters will be considered for merit-based scholarships. The award will be for either a 25% or 50% tuition scholarship for one course, taken for either credit or non-credit. Students admitted into the five-course certificate or degree program offered by a partner school are eligible for a maximum scholarship of $2,375 (a 50% scholarship, equivalent of $475 for per courses). The full cost of the for-credit courses is determined by partner schools.
Contact Sabrina E. Dent, director of admissions and recruitment, for more details about any of the information listed above.
