The Augustinian Institute at Villanova University invites applications for the Patricia H. Imbesi Saint Augustine Fellowship for the Spring 2018 semester. Each spring semester Villanova University invites a scholar both to engage in his/her own research and to make it available to the university community by participating in varied conversations: with faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and other scholars in the region.
Responsibilities of the recipient of the Patricia H. Imbesi Saint Augustine Fellowship include availability for informal conversations (i. e., office hours), leading 2 seminars with faculty and/or graduate students, giving a public lecture on a topic relating to present research, and participation in the work-in-progress of the Augustinian Institute.
The semester stipend for a St. Augustine Fellow is $30,000. The Augustinian Institute rents a house for the semester – a benefit that is subject to federal tax law as imputed income to the Fellow. Medical benefits are provided by Villanova University.
This fellowship is open to a scholar who has a doctoral degree but is not yet tenured. They are to have expertise in the life and thought of St. Augustine or in the influence of St. Augustine.
