Fr. Philip A. Smith, O.P., Student Fellowships for Study and Service Abroad

Fellowship Program Description

The Fr. Philip A. Smith, O.P. Student Fellowships for Study and Service Abroad are awarded on a competitive basis to rising juniors and seniors. The Fellowships enable students to undertake summer study or service at Catholic and Dominican sites outside the continental United States. The Fellowships cover travel, living, and incidental expenses, and provide Fellows with a modest stipend. The Fellowships are funded through the generosity of, among others, members of the Providence College Board of Trustees, current and former.



The Fellowships are designed to encourage highly motivated students to deepen their acquaintance with the Catholic and Dominican intellectual tradition and the ethos of Christian service, and to introduce them to the breadth and richness of the church universal. They are also intended to act as a leaven within the College community.


Criteria for Selection

Proposals from rising juniors and seniors are considered on the basis of a) the aptness of the proposed course of study or service, given the purpose of the Fellowships; b) the demonstrated ability and readiness of the student to undertake what is proposed; and c) the feasibility and timeliness of the proposal. Although study and service undertaken as a Fellow may contribute to ongoing interests and scholarship, study or service for credit is excluded.
