Scholarship Description
The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) offers Graduate Student Fellowships for advanced graduate students for a full academic year (fall and spring semesters, August through May).

NDIAS is dedicated to fostering and supporting integrative scholarship addressing ultimate questions at the intersection of the arts, engineering, humanities, law, and formal, natural, and social sciences, especially those that transcend disciplinary boundaries.

While a member of the Institute’s academic community, the NDIAS encourages graduate students to address questions of values in their analyses, to integrate diverse disciplines, and to ask how their findings advance civilization. The Institute offers its fellows the opportunity to engage not only in analysis but also in evaluating what should be done, to analyze the world in substantive and collaborative ways, and to think through the implications of present behavior for the future of the world.

NDIAS Graduate Student Fellowships

The Institute welcomes applications from graduate students in all disciplines, including the arts, engineering, the humanities, law, and the formal, natural, and social sciences with projects that are creative, innovative, or align with the intellectual orientation of the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. Graduate students from all institutions are invited to apply.

The Institute seeks candidates with:
  • excellent records of scholarly, artistic, or research accomplishment in their field(s);
  • projects that touch on normative, integrative, or ultimate questions, especially as they engage the Catholic intellectual tradition;
  • projects characterized by clarity of thought, coherence, and impact;
  • the ability to interact with other fellows and to engage in collegial discussions of research presentations; and
  • a willingness to contribute to a cooperative community of scholars.
Applicants who are members of traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. There are no citizenship requirements for fellowships; non-U.S. nationals are welcome to apply.

Selection Criteria:
Fellowship applications are evaluated according to the following criteria:
  • the academic strength of the proposal;
  • the clarity and compelling nature of relevant methodologies and project organization and objectives, as explained in the proposal;
  • the applicant’s ability to address major questions, meta issues, and questions of value;
  • the potential for producing significant research;
  • how the proposed research aligns with the intellectual parameters of the Institute;
  • the applicant’s ability to contribute to a cooperative community of interdisciplinary scholars, as explained in their letters of reference; and
  • the significance of the research proposed by each applicant vis-à-vis other proposals submitted.
Because of the numerous criteria involved in selecting fellows, application files are reviewed and evaluated by leading scholars in the respective disciplines and fields, serving as external reviewers. The final major review, conducted by the Institute’s Selection Committee (which is made up of an interdisciplinary group of scholars), consists of a thorough review of applications as well as the evaluation of internal and external reviewers.
