Grants of up to $1,000 to USA university and college faculty across a range of disciplines to develop or revise coursework that promotes interfaith concepts. Funding is intended for innovative curricula that advance interfaith studies and pedagogies with new and intensive approaches. Grant awards are meant to support grantees for the time and energy it takes to create or revise a syllabus.

Interfaith studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the multiple dimensions of how individuals and groups who orient around religion differently interact with one another, and the implications of these interactions for communities, civil society, and global politics. Scholars in religious studies and theology have often spearheaded these efforts, but faculty across the humanities, social sciences, and hard sciences – as well as pre-professional programs such as business, pre-health, social work, and education – are increasingly building interfaith studies curricula.

The following eight themes have emerged as significant pedagogies and/or areas of intention for this field of teaching and learning.
- Experiential Learning
- Case Studies
- Interfaith Dialogue
- Religious Literacy
- Professional Relevance
- Personal Journey and Reflection
- Interdisciplinarity
- Intersectionality
