The Center supports fellowships for Notre Dame undergraduates, Ph.D. students, faculty, and visiting scholars.
The Menard Family Tocqueville Undergraduate Fellows Program
Our Menard Family Tocqueville Fellowship is designed to cultivate a spirit and ethic of citizenship among a select group of Notre Dame undergraduates. The fellowship seeks to identify, educate, and mentor future leaders of industry, public affairs, and the Church.
Fellows attend the Center’s lectures and debates, participate in student colloquia, and engage in spirited conversation. Fellows engage with lecturers and one another to understand the fundamental principles of a decent and just political regime while developing the virtues of citizenship. They receive special invitations to engage with faculty and visiting speakers, as well as find summer and postgraduate opportunities through our network. The fellowship is made possible in part through the generosity of the John Menard family.
Undergraduate students from Notre Dame, St. Mary’s College, and Holy Cross Community College are encouraged to apply.
The Center sponsors and hosts visiting faculty scholars and offers post-graduate and post-doctoral fellowships. Visiting scholars and Center fellows participate in the Center’s intellectual life and enrich our community with their interests and expertise while pursuing their own research and, in some cases, teaching.
Busch Family Scholar
The Center’s Busch Family Scholar is a visiting fellow whose scholarship explores the Catholic intellectual tradition, especially as it relates to enduring and contemporary questions concerning a just constitutional order. The fellowship is made possible by the generosity of Tim and Stephanie Busch.
Garrett and Betsy Busch Fellowship
The Garrett and Betsy Busch Fellowship is awarded to a Notre Dame Constitutional Studies graduate student. The fellowship is named in recognition of Garrett S Busch, ‘09, MBA ‘10, and Elizabeth O. Busch, ‘09.
