Sorin Fellows Program
Integral Student Formation in the Catholic Tradition
The de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture’s Sorin Fellows Program is a community of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at the University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, and Holy Cross College inspired by the richness of the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition and committed to pursuing truly integral development in the context of their collegiate experience and in the discernment of their vocations.
Through this student formation program, Sorin Fellows are supported by the de Nicola Center and provided opportunities to encounter role models and befriend mentors who exhibit virtues of integral formation, consider enduring and contemporary issues through the lens of the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition, nourish their interior life and appreciation for the spiritual heritage of the Catholic Church, and discern and cultivate their gifts and talents through grant funding and internships. The Center supports more than 200 Sorin Fellows at the undergraduate and graduate levels, representing nearly every field of study from across the range of the university's constituent colleges and schools.
By actively participating in and contributing to the life of the de Nicola Center, Sorin Fellows also play a crucial role in amplifying Notre Dame’s witness to human dignity, authentic human freedom, and the common good in the global public square.
