Graduate Students Win Fellowships

Graduate Students Win Fellowships

Three Boston College graduate students have won fellowships to participate in a weeklong colloquy on faith and intellectual life to be held June 16-23 at St. John's University in Collegeville, Minn.

Doctoral students Maureen Kelly (Theology), Joseph Tadie (Philosophy) and Brian Treanor (Philosophy) are among 25 graduate fellows chosen for the Collegium institute, a joint effort by more than 50 colleges and universities to recruit and develop faculty who can articulate and enrich the spiritual and intellectual life of their institutions.

Collegium seminars invite scholars to explore some of the most compelling aspects of the Catholic intellectual tradition and to develop their own sense of vocation as intellectuals in a contemporary context.

Participants usually include faculty from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds curious about what role they have in the mission of their Catholic institution, and graduate students hoping to discern how they might best develop their own spiritual and intellectual vocation.
