What is the Russell Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies?

The Russell Berrie Fellowship targets priests, women religious, and members of the laity for the purpose of studying at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) to obtain a Licence or a Doctorate Degree in Theology, as well as a Diploma in Interreligious Studies. This program is an initiative of the John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue at the Angelicum. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to build bridges between Christian, Jewish, and other religious traditions by providing the next generation of religious leaders with a comprehensive understanding of and dedication to interfaith issues.
