Doyle Undergraduate Fellows
The Doyle Undergraduate Fellows program brings together faculty and students to foster student engagement with difference through scholarship and intercultural engagement on campus, in the DC community, and around the world.
Fellows conduct original research projects that explore the broader implications of cultural and religious diversity, organize and participate in events and service projects, and blog regularly to build a community of students engaged in academic and outreach work on these issues. The research theme for the Doyle Undergraduate Fellows program changes annually, and fellows are selected at the beginning of each academic year.
The Doyle Undergraduate Fellows program will not be accepting applications at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Engaged Scholarship – The Doyle Undergraduate Fellows program helps students to develop critical skills in engaged scholarship, connecting academic research with real-world issues to create a more peaceful world. Past projects have examined issues ranging from interreligious dialogue to the global refugee crisis.
Local Outreach – The program allows students to participate actively in community life by sponsoring projects based in and around Washington, DC. In the past, participating students have collaborated with the leaders of local nonprofits and religious organizations to work toward creating more just and sustainable communities in DC.
