Grants to recognize outstanding papers on mercy, Catholic intellectual tradition
In April 2015, the Office of Mission Integration will award $500 mission integration grants to faculty, staff and students whose papers on mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition are selected for presentation and publication.
In recent years, faculty and staff have participated in extended dialogues about the Catholic intellectual tradition and its place in the University, as well as what mercy means for particular disciplines. Now, the Office of Mission Integration wishes to encourage reflection on how mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition are interrelated.
Suggested topics include mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition in higher education; mercy, faith and reason; or mercy and the history of Catholicism.
A selection committee will evaluate abstracts and final papers based on clarity and originality of thought, quality of writing and scholarship and contribution to the understanding of the place of mercy in the Catholic intellectual tradition.
- April 24, 2014: Abstract (250-300 words), including the title, thesis and brief description of the proposed paper, due to email@example.com.
