How to Apply

Important Date

The nomination deadline for faculty fellowships is April 1.


Collegium fellowships are available annually for faculty from Collegium's member institutions.

The program welcomes interested participants from all religious denominations. Its general focus is on the multiple traditions that comprise "the Catholic imagination." Some mentors are faculty from other denominations who have chosen to live out an academic vocation in a Catholic environment, while others are Catholic scholars who have pursued teaching in a secular setting. Catholic institutions thrive when they are able to share with and learn from people of all faiths.

Because the Collegium summer colloquy depends in significant part on the mutual commitment of participants to a process that lasts throughout the week, all participants should be able to commit to participation during the whole colloquy.

Fellowships cover all normal travel expenses, lodging, meals, and seminar-related costs.

Application Procedures

Faculty fellows are nominated by a designated liaison at each member institution. Contact the Collegium office at or 503-943-7702 for the name of your campus liaison. Completed faculty fellowship nominees must complete the online registration no later than April 1, 2022. Registrations must include:

  • the completed on-line registration form
  • a curriculum vitae;
  • a personal essay, up to 750 words, in which you discuss your reasons for applying to Collegium. Include in your essay your most significant hopes and/or questions about the relationship between your academic career and spiritual life. The primary purpose of the essay is not to determine acceptance into the program, but rather to give us a prior sense of what issues are most important to fellows.
