Academic Opportunities

Röpke-Wojtyła Fellowship

The Röpke-Wojtyła Fellowship is a program to educate future Catholic intellectuals and business leaders in the moral and economic defense of the free enterprise system and in Catholic social thought. This tradition finds its roots in the works of Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, and the scholastics among others. Wilhelm Röpke’s humane economics and Karol Wojtyła’s rich anthropology are contemporary exemplars of that approach.

The Röpke-Wojtyła Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding undergraduate students majoring in a variety of fields including accounting, business, computer science, economics, finance, Catholic Studies, philosophy, political science, and theology. Selected students will be in their college senior year during the fellowship. Selected students participate in three one-day colloquia (Liberty Fund style) in Washington, DC in October 2017, February 2018, and May 2018. These colloquia are one day only on a Saturday from 7:30 AM to 9:00 PM (three meals included) with four sessions. The students also participate in Acton University in Grand Rapids, MI in June, 2018. Following Acton University, there will be a short seminar concluding the year in which the students discuss a topical paper they have authored. At all these events, students will interact with exceptional and inspiring scholars.

Röpke-Wojtyła Fellows receive a fellowship of $5,000 in four installments. Additionally, all expenses (travel, lodging and food) to participate in the colloquia will be paid. Applications should be sent to cioccacenter@cua.edu ATTN: Dr. Frederic Sautet. For more information see flyer and application leaflet.
