There are few fellowship programs today that can fulfill the desires of a young person to serve the truth in a practical way, while also incorporating an intellectual component that can enrich both their personal and professional aspirations.
The Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project offers just this kind of fellowship to both undergraduate and graduate students. The candidates we seek demonstrate a strong academic track record and a genuine interest in the Catholic intellectual tradition, and recognize the special role of philosophy in the rebirth of culture.
The successful applicant must also be willing to undertake the production of a high-quality project related to the work of the Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project. To the extent possible, efforts are made to pair projects with the talents and abilities of chosen applicants. Some possible projects include: editing journal articles for publication, project management, website development, etc.
Additional desired skills: an interest in Christian personalism and the philosophical tradition as represented by Dietrich von Hildebrand, Max Scheler, Edith Stein; facility with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook; database experience (especially with Blackbaud or Salesforce). Some knowledge of German is helpful, as well as experience in development and other skill-sets pertinent within a think-tank setting.
