Funding Opportunities

Michaela Reyes Eppc Internship

The Sorin Fellows Program assists its student fellows to explore their interests, cultivate their gifts and talents, and pursue integral formation in the Catholic tradition through Center-supported internships and funding opportunities.

Supported internships and funding opportunities reflect and advance and reflect the mission of the dCEC: to explore, deepen, and articulate a robust understanding of human dignity, authentic human freedom, and the common good in light of the richness of the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition across a range of disciplines and sectors.

The dCEC sponsors four primary grant programs throughout the academic year and hosts a ‘Placement Referral Request’ program.

Please note: Due to the global escalation of COVID-19, the University has prohibited all University-reimbursed international travel for students, faculty, and staff for fall 2020 and until further notice. This travel ban covers all research, academic programs, internships, conferences, and other experiences that require travel.

Questions regarding this policy? Email dCEC Student Program Manager Pete Hlabse (phlabse@nd.edu).
