Fellowships are awarded annually in support of research projects relating to the work of Bernard J. F. Lonergan, S.J. The Fellowships include a stipend of $8,000 a semester, or $16,000 for both semesters.

Preference will be given to scholars who have earned a Ph.D., or a similar advanced degree, and who will be able to be in residence at Boston College for one or two semesters. In addition to the stipend, the Lonergan Institute offers housing to a limited number of visiting scholars in a peaceful, communal setting located on campus.

Applicants should include (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a letter of recommendation from an established scholar acquainted with the applicant’s qualifications and work, and (3) a 500-word research or writing proposal outlining the applicant’s project and the resources at Boston College on which it will draw.

These documents should be addressed to Professor Patrick Byrne, Director of the Lonergan Institute, Boston College and emailed no later than January 15 to Mary Elliot at franksmb@bc.edu.

Decisions will be announced by mid-March.
