On behalf of the Russell Berrie Foundation, IIE is pleased to announce the eleventh consecutive year of the Russell Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies, arranged at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum).

The Fellowship offers clergy, religious, and members of the laity an opportunity to study for a Licence Degree or a
