Russell Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies
Established in 2008, The John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue was made possible through the generosity of The Russell Berrie Foundation. The JPII Center offered 133 Russell Berrie Fellowships at the Angelicum, supported over forty projects in dialogue and peacebuilding, and partnered with like-minded organizations and networks to amplify the impact of interfaith collaboration throughout the world.
In consultation with The Russell Berrie Foundation, the JPII Center ended its Fellowship program in 2023. For additional information about former Russell Berrie Fellows or other initiatives and projects in Interreligious Dialogue, please visit the website of The John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue.
