Barbara & Patrick Keenan Undergraduate Internship Award for Interfaith Studies

The Barbara & Patrick Keenan Undergraduate Internship Award for Interfaith Studies was established in 2012 by Barbara Keenan (BA'54) and Patrick Keenan (BCom'54, CA'57). It is awarded by the Faculty of Religious Studies to undergraduate students participating in an internship broadly related to interfaith studies in an international setting, allowing first-hand experience of religious cultures in a global context. The host organization can be a religious NGO or any other institution active on the interfaith field. Organizations promoting proselytization are excluded. The Award is meant to provide partial funding to assist students with travel and other expenses related to their internship. It is open to McGill undergraduate students in all faculties who have completed at least two courses in religious studies. Students must be returning to McGill the semester following the internship. Internships typically take place between May and September.
