Information for Religious Resources for Living Beyond Crisis


Participant conversation and connection is an essential component of the program. We seek a group of participants with diverse perspectives and experiences. The only formal requirement for admission is proficiency in written and spoken English.

All applicants are encouraged to review Harvard Divinity School’s nondiscrimination policy and community values statement.


Prospective participants are requested to complete a brief application. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis with decisions communicated weekly. Given the relatively small size of the program, interested applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible to ensure that space is available.


The program fee is $1,600. We accept American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. You may also pay by transferring the tuition fee from a bank account.

What’s included

The program fee covers all lectures, meaning making sessions, and pre-readings.

Withdrawals, refunds, and changes to the program

Participants can withdraw their registration subject to the following refund schedule:

  • 15 or more days before the program start: full refund
  • 8–14 days before start: 50 percent refund
  • Within 7 days of start: no refund

Program curriculum, dates, and faculty are subject to change. In the unlikely event of a change in the program dates, participants who previously paid are eligible to have the program fee refunded in full, but the School is not responsible for any other expenses incurred by the participant.

Pre-program preparation

There are 5-10 hours of preliminary assignments and readings to complete prior to the start of the program. Materials will be distributed to participants a month before the program start date.
