Center Fellowships

Current and Past Center Fellows

Recurring Fellowships

Each year, the Center offers a number of residential fellowships. For the 2017-2018 academic year, we are offering the following fellowships:

Up to 3 Research Fellowships (up to $70,000): For philosophers, theologians, or religious studies scholars working on topics that bear some connection to philosophy of religion. (Stipend may be used for salary replacement, research, and up to $5K for relocation.)

Visiting Graduate Fellowship ($25,000): For a philosophy graduate student from another institution who has serious research interests in philosophy of religion.  (Note: Applicants for this fellowship are not expected to be doing dissertation work in philosophy of religion; nor are they expected to propose a fellowship project in that field.  To be eligible, one need only have serious research interest in philosophy of religion.)

Important Notes

  • Philosophers applying need not propose a project in philosophy of religion--projects need only bear some connection to the field. In recent years, we've funded work in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and history, for example.
  • We welcome applications from postdocs. You may request the entire stipend as salary, or divide it between salary and research/relocation funding.
  • Notre Dame faculty are not eligible for Center fellowships.
  • Winning applicants for Fellowships (other than Visiting Graduate) must have a Ph.D. prior to the time of appointment (August 2017).
  • All application materials for these fellowships must be received by February 1, 2017.
  • Please see FAQs for more information, including application instructions.
