Connelly Fellowship in Religion, Science and Human Flourishing

This project gives students an opportunity to conduct academic research and participate in theological, ethical, and scientific reflection enriched by the experiences of their peers and their spiritual and religious traditions. It seeks to enable the development of students as reflective decision makers who will seek solutions, enact change, and contribute to the flourishing of the human family. Although the research project is not for credit, the fellowship provides an opportunity to explore questions “close to the heart” and engage with peers on these questions.

This fellowship is open to undergraduates who have completed their first year.

Responsibilities include:

  • Produce a significant and meaningful (written) research project
  • Work with a faculty member
  • Accomplish research in conjunction with theological (religious or spiritual) reflection on the project
  • Participate in regular group discussions to share research ideas
  • Form a community of scholars
  • Meet project deadlines
  • Fellow will receive a $500 stipend
