2019-20 Fellowships

Applications for fellowships are reviewed once a year in early January. CWCIT is now accepting applications for the 2019-20 academic year. The deadline to apply is January 1, 2018.

DePaul University's academic year usually starts in early September after Labor Day and ends in early June. The duration of the fellowship is flexible—up to four months—depending on the availability of the scholar.

CWCIT provides a monthly stipend, as well as office space, equipment, supplies, administrative support, and library access. Visiting fellows are, however, responsible for their own housing costs.
Eligibility Requirements
  • Research focused on some aspect of Catholicism in the "global South"—Asia, Africa, Latin America
  • Professional proficiency in English (written & spoken)

Strong preference is given to scholars based in the global South who generally do not have the same access to research resources as do scholars based in the global North.

Application Process for the 2019-20 Academic Year

To apply, please e-mail the following information to CWCIT Director William T. Cavanaugh no later than JANUARY 1, 2018:

  • Current CV
  • Research project proposal (6 pages maximum, double-spaced in 12-point font)
  • Names & contact information of 1-2 references (please include position/title and affiliated university/institution)
CWCIT will inform 2019-20 applicants of its decision by early March 2018.
