The primary objective of the Research Fellowship is to challenge the next generation of leaders to explore connections between their faith and vocation. Fellowships have been created to provide undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to pursue the global common good while continuing to prepare for their career. 


It is our desire Research Fellows seek real world applications of faith and vocation. This requires gaining a deep and rich understanding of the Christian faith and its implications for all of life, as well as, developing the actual facilities and positional authority necessary to seek the common good.


Applications are open in the spring before a student’s final year of study (due June 15). Applicants will be notified of the admission committee’s decision by July 15. There will be five monthly meetings (Aug-Dec) in the fall where the Research Fellows discuss core theology and identify an area of research in their vocation. Each Research Fellow is expected to spend 6-10 hours a week (Jan-Apr) on his or her project and will be compensated for the time. In May the Research Fellows will present their findings.
