Harvard Divinity School Program

I am following up to a save-the-date email sent in July regarding
> Harvard Divinity School's Diversity and Explorations Program, a new
> multicultural outreach initiative scheduled for October 22-24.
> Inaugurated in fall 2007, the program’s primary aim is to provide
> outreach to students from groups generally underrepresented in
> theological education. The program is available to all students from
> backgrounds which suggest a commitment to issues of diversity and
> social justice and an interest in the fields of religion, theology, or
> ministry. Forty (40) students will be selected from a competitive
> application process and all participants will be provided with travel and lodging for three nights.
> The application deadline of September 19 is quickly approaching and we
> want to let you know that application materials and information about
> the program are now available on our website at
> We hope
> you will help us make this year a success by identifying a current
> student or recent graduate who might have an interest in graduate
> theological education. If you have already done so, we thank you!

> This year’s itinerary will include workshops, seminars, and open
> classes to expose participants to the study of religion, theology, and
> ministry, as well as to interdisciplinary opportunities in variety of
> professional, academic, and ministerial careers.
> Highlights of the 2008 program include:
