Lilly Fellows Network Program
Duquesne University is a member of the Lilly Fellows Program in the Humanities and the Arts. The LFP supports church-related institutions. Duquesne's membership in the LFP network includes eligibility for several attractive external funding opportunities, including but not limited to:
• Postdoctoral Fellows Program, a two year residential program for teacher-scholars in the humanities or the arts who are interested in the relationship between Christianity and the academy.
• Graduate Fellows Program, a three year graduate fellowship program that would support a Duquesne student who has earned a bachelors degree and is entering a doctoral program or equivalent graduate program in the humanities or the arts at their school of choice.
• The Small Grant Program provides $1500 to $3000 to support new campus conversations about a wide variety of issues in relation to their home institution's mission .
• Regional Conferences or Workshops that convene members of a particular institution or from several regional institutions can receive up to $12500 of support from LFP. The Lilly Fellows Network Program describes the topical range of these conferences and workshops as "flexible."
• Summer Seminars for College Teachers provide opportunities for faculty at Network institutions to consider a major interdisciplinary issue. Duquesne faculty could apply to attend a seminar or organize and host one.
For information about these and other funding opportunities through the LFP Network you can visit www.lillyfellows.org. If you wish to speak with a LFP Network representative here at Duquesne you can contact Dr. Ron Arnett (Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies) or Dr. Maureen O'Brien (Department of Theology). If you have potential small grant, conference, or summer seminar projects in mind but desire assistance articulating your ideas in relation to Duquesne's Catholic and Spiritan mission you may also contact Dr. Darlene Weaver, Director of Center for Catholic Faith and Culture .
