Ikeda Center Education Fellows Program

The Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue in Cambridge, Massachusetts has a fellowship program in humanistic education, established 2007.

As background, the Ikeda Center Education Fellows Program provides $10,000 per year for two years to support dissertation research on Soka (literally "to create value") education, an emerging field of study in humanistic education.  The dissertation topic can be comparative—examining contrasts and similarities with other philosophies and practices of humanistic education—or can focus solely on Soka education.

Further information and a bibliographic guide to English-language sources on Soka education may be found at their website.
