Woodstock Theological Center International Visiting Fellowship Program

Application Deadline December 31, 2012

What?
An opportunity to spend time carrying out a personal research project at the Woodstock Theological Center, an independent, Jesuit-sponsored research institute located at Georgetown University that engages in theological and ethical reflection on topics of social, economic, business, scientific, cultural, religious, and political importance. As a Woodstock International Visiting Fellow, you will have access to the Georgetown University Library, the Woodstock Theological Center Library, and the intellectual companionship of the Woodstock senior research fellows and Georgetown faculty.

While the main purpose of your Woodstock fellowship will be to conduct research on your chosen topic, Woodstock hopes that all International Visiting Fellows also contribute to the Center’s mission and projects. In addition, the permanent and visiting fellows have a theological seminar that meets twice a month to discuss a book that we read in common.

  • Fellowships for Jesuits. Woodstock offers short-term and long-term fellowships to Jesuits who have a doctorate or equivalent education and whose home province in not in the United States.
