Every year, the Center offers a number of fellowships. For the 2015-2016 academic year, we are offering the following fellowships (in addition to several fellowships through our two grant projects: Hope & Optimism: Conceptual and Empirical Investigations and The Experience Project):
Alvin Plantinga Fellowship ($75,000): For a senior, established philosopher whose work has important connections to philosophy of religion and/or Christian Philosophy
Senior Research Fellowship in Religious Experience ($75,000): For a senior scholar in philosophy, theology, or religious studies working on the topic of religious experience.
Visiting Graduate Fellowship ($20,000): For a philosophy graduate student from another institution who has serious research interests in the philosophy of religion. (Note: Applicants for this fellowship are not expected to be doing dissertation work in the philosophy of religion; nor are they expected to propose a fellowship project in that field. To be eligible, one need only express and provide evidence of serious research interest in philosophy of religion.)
All fellowship stipends include money for moving expenses and research-related expenses.
Notre Dame faculty are not eligible for Center fellowships.
