The Center for Ethics and Culture’s Sorin Fellowship Program provides Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition and examine the many ways they can be brought to bear on pressing ethical issues in culture and public policy today.
Named in honor of Notre Dame’s founder, Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., as part of the university’s bicentennial celebration of his birth, the Sorin Fellowship Program takes as its inspiration Father Sorin’s vision that Notre Dame might be “a powerful means for good” in the world. Through this student formation program, undergraduate and graduate students are given the tools and support necessary to deepen their understanding of complex ethical issues and amplify Notre Dame’s witness to authentic human dignity and the common good in the public square.
The Sorin Fellowship Program provides students the opportunity to build lasting relationships with other fellows and Notre Dame faculty, participate actively in the intellectual life of the Center and its programming, and gain access to a wide range of unique opportunities, including:
- specialized mentorship by Notre Dame professors;
- exclusive meetings with influential leaders and distinguished visitors to the university, including Supreme Court justices, Vatican officials, bioethicists, and scholars at the top of their fields;
- assistance finding and funding summer internships in a variety of fields;
- opportunities to organize student-led events;
- research projects guided by leading scholars within and outside Notre Dame, and more.
