The Interfaith Scholars are a group of students who are interested in exploring the religious diversity of the Augsburg student body, the wider Twin Cities community, and the United States through interreligious dialogue and action. Students from a variety of traditions as well as the non-religious are invited to apply in order to converse respectfully with others about what they believe, why it matters, and how it propels us to service in the world. Once selected, the cohort has both academic and service requirements for an entire academic year.

The Interfaith Scholars Program is a collaboration between the Christensen Center for Vocation (CCV), Campus Ministry and the Religion Department.


Please see the Interfaith Scholar Information Sheet (PDF) for specific details about the program.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2019-2020 Interfaith Scholars. Applications for the next cohort of scholars will open in late January/early February of 2020.
