Global Engagement's Summer Visiting Doctoral Research Fellowship

In keeping with Boston College's strategic initiatives—including increasing its impact around the globe—and to highlight its leadership as a premier Jesuit University in Global Engagement, this fellowship is designed to support the next generation of scholars through research opportunities and hospitality. . The summer research fellowships will support graduate students matriculated at a partnering university (e.g., from SACRU partners, Ateneo de Manila University, Pontificia Universidad Católica Javeriana, Université St-Joseph de Beyrouth, etc.) who are seeking to undertake 2 months of research at Boston College.
