STUDENT PROGRAMMING

McCullen Center Summer 2021 Fellowship Program

The Eleanor H. McCullen Center for Law, Religion and Public Policy is pleased to announce its second annual Summer Fellowship Program. Villanova University law students, graduate students, and undergraduate students are invited to apply. The McCullen Center will sponsor up to 15 student summer fellowships at up to $5000 each.

The Summer Fellowship Program seeks to support student internship placements or research assistantships that reflect and advance the mission of the McCullen Center in the areas of constitutional studies (particularly freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and economic liberty), the role of religion in civil society, and the promotion of human dignity and the common good.

The summer internship program is available to students who are planning to pursue an internship placement in a field related to the mission of the McCullen Center. Likewise, research assistantships are available to students who wish to conduct research projects under faculty supervision on issues related to the intersection of law, religion, and public policy.

The following application materials are required:

  • a resume or CV
  • a proposal that describes the nature of the internship or research project and its connections to the mission of the McCullen Center (approximately 500-1000 words)
  • an itemized budget detailing how funding will be spent with anticipated start and end dates

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and should be submitted through the form available here. For priority consideration, the deadline for applications is February 28, 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact Michael Moreland, Director of the McCullen Center or Melanie Dudley, Assistant Director and Program Manager of the McCullen Center.
