The Center for Intercultural Dialogue offers small project grants available for faculty (up to $500) and graduates (up to $250) to support research in the field of intercultural dialogue. Awards will be made for the following purposes: travel to conferences to present papers; travel to library, museum and archival collections; research materials and expenses related to collaborative projects.

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue supports research that takes interdisciplinary approaches to transcultural studies and interreligious dialogue as a means to promote peace. CID considers “intercultural dialogue” a broad field with multiple approaches, and thus encourages applicants from all disciplines. Applicants who engage in collaborative research, focus on UNESCO-related issues, develop work with another UNESCO Chair from the Network on Interreligious Dialogue for Intercultural Understanding, or propose projects in conjunction with CID’s upcoming “Prisons and Peace” initiative are encouraged to apply.
