Building Interfaith America

2020-21 Campus Innovation Grant 


In a time when our country is experiencing cultural, political, and religious division, our nation needs interfaith leaders to break barriers and build bridges across difference. At Interfaith Youth Core, we envision interfaith leaders in all areas of campus life - as student club presidents, program coordinators in student life offices, faculty partnering with the Service-Learning office, and vice presidents supporting an interfaith strategic planning process. By bringing people together, interfaith leaders facilitate meaningful dialogue and action and bring positive change on their college campus and in their community.

IFYC is offering Campus Innovation Grants in the amount of $2000 and $4000 to support campuses as they implement sustainable initiatives to advance interfaith leadership. All undergraduate-serving U.S. institutions of higher education are eligible to apply for a Campus Innovation Grant. IFYC is particularly interested in supporting these initiatives at HBCU and HSI campuses.
