The Center of World Catholicism and Inter-cultural Theology at DePaul University is currently accepting application for 2018 summer fellowship for African theology students who are at the writing phase in their doctoral program.
Those interested please send the following:
1. A 2-paged statement of intent indicating why you need such a fellowship for completing your doctoral thesis.
2. A 2-paged summary of your doctoral research project
3. A CV
4. Two letters of recommendations, one of which will be from your current thesis supervisor.
The Summer Fellowship grant is a 8,000 dollars grant to African doctoral students to spend 1-3 months at DePaul University in the summer dedicating their time to working on their research. Such fellows are provided an office space as well as granted library privileges. They will have to cater for their accommodation, feeding and transportation with the research grant which they will receive at the beginning of the fellowship. The Center will help them with letters for visa should they be in need of one.
Please note that the invitation to submit an application does not mean acceptance into the program as this is a highly competitive fellowship.
Best wishes from Stan Chu Ilo, STL, PhD, D.ED (Research Professor of African Studies, Catholic Studies and the World Church, Coordinator, African Catholicism Project).
