The University of Wales Trinity Saint David, in collaboration with the International Federation of Inter-Faith and Intercultural Dialogue and the Chin Kung Multi-cultural Education Foundation, are pleased to invite applications for one of 25 fully-funded Harmony Doctoral Scholarships starting in September 2017. Each scholarship lasts for three years.

Applications are invited from high quality students in the area of theology and religious studies, and from all religions and faith traditions of the world. Working through their own particular faith tradition or theological/ religious specialism, students will research aspects of inter-faith, inter-cultural dialogue through an investigation of the similarities and differences between the beliefs, ethics and precepts of various religions and faith-based traditions. Successful candidates will work and study within a collaborative context and will undertake during the first year a structured programme of doctoral training in textual analysis, research methodologies, and inter-faith study and dialogue, to support their individual research over the remaining two years.
