Religious Worlds of New York Summer Institute

The Religious Worlds of New York summer institute is a project of the Interfaith Center of New York that helps K-12 teachers teach creatively and effectively about religious diversity.  The institute brings teachers from throughout the United States to New York City, where they work with leading scholars of religion, meet with diverse religious leaders, visit local houses of worship, and develop original curriculum projects.  Thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, participants receive a $2,850 stipend to help cover their expenses during the three-week program.  Past participants have described the program as “A tremendous experience that will enrich the teaching that takes place in classrooms across the country for decades to come” (click here for many more evaluations).  It’s a great opportunity for any K-12 educators who teach, or plan to teach, about religious diversity.  The next Religious Worlds institute will meet from July 8-26, 2024.  Applications are due by March 5.
