2020-21 Fellowships

Applications for fellowships are reviewed once a year in early
2020-23 calendar
January.
CWCIT is now accepting applications for the 2020-21 academic year. The deadline to apply is January 1, 2019.

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 travel expenses to and from Chicago and a monthly stipend, as well as office space, equipment, supplies, administrative support, and library access. The stipend is generous and is more than enough to cover the cost of housing and other living expenses in Chicago.
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 2020-21 Academic Year

To apply, please e-mail the following information to CWCIT Director William T. Cavanaugh no later than JANUARY 1, 2019:

  • 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 2020-21 applicants of its decision by early March 2019.
