The Fahs Fellows
Who are the Fahs Fellows?
The Fahs Research Fellows are educational entrepreneurs in the practice of religious education. Each year, they conduct research and propose innovative solutions that are relevant across the landscape of religious life. Fellows are professional religious educators, seminarians, ministers, musicians and lay people—all of whom are eager to break through the crust of conventional thought and practice. Fellows receive a stipend, attend professional conferences, and are expected to share what they learn at conferences and through social media.
