Kraft Global Fellows Program

Update on the Kraft Global Fellows Program - January 2023

The Office of the University Chaplain is accepting applications for the January 2023 Kraft Global Fellowship Program to Nairobi. See the link for Columbia University's policy on travel. 


What is the Kraft Global Fellows Program?

The Kraft Global Fellows Program is a joint initiative of the Kraft Family Fund for Intercultural and Interfaith Awareness and the Office of the University Chaplain. 

Fellows are selected to travel to one of the Columbia Global Centers (CGC)  to work on a group research project that focuses on the religions, cultures, and communities of the destination country. 

Fellows will meet with political, religious, historical, and community leaders. Included, are visits to various archaeological and historical sites. 

The goal of the program is to encourage students of different backgrounds and faith to learn from and with each other about their identities even as they learn about the religions and cultures outside of their familiarity.
