June 12 - 17, 2022
The Civitas Dei Summer Fellowship is a project sponsored by the Institute for Human Ecology at the Catholic University of America and by the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies that offers competitive fellowships for graduate students (and a few talented, upper-level undergraduates), drawing from across fields in the sciences, humanities, and from law.
Accepted fellowship recipients attend a one week program in Washington, D.C. that offers courses and seminars given by distinguished scholars focusing on some aspect of Catholic thought in relation to culture and public life.
This year’s Civitas Dei fellowship examines “The City of God in Modernity: Culture and Ecclesiology,” and will feature lectures that approach the question of the Church in relation to culture and society from different scholarly perspectives, drawing on resources from the Church’s experience during the patristic, medieval, and early modern periods. By participating in this fellowship, accepted students will be introduced to a wealth of scholarly resources on the Church’s life during these historical epochs, and encouraged to think critically about the application of these principles to the Church’s life in the present and future.
2022 Featured Speakers:
Prof. Carlos Eire (Yale University)
Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P. (Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology)
Prof. Thomas Clemmons (Catholic University of America)
Open to graduate students and advanced undergraduates in all disciplines. Successful applicants will receive travel funding as well as lodging for the extent of the fellowship and waived registration fee.
Applications are accepted until March 31.
