CEJS Fellowships

CEJS Student Fellowships

  • The Gary L. Chamberlain Student Research Fellowship honors Dr. Gary Chamberlain who taught at Seattle University from 1979 until 2009 in the Theology and Religious Studies Department.

  • The Francis Student Research Fellowship honors the patron saint of the animals and of ecology, St. Francis of Assisi and his namesake Pope Francis who, through Laudato Si, encourages us to Care for Our Common Home, to consider the inextricable link between environmental and social sustainability and “to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor”.

Apply for a 2023-2024 CEJS Student Fellowship (Application Deadline March 1, 2023)

One of the primary goals of CEJS is to support the scholarship of Seattle University students and faculty who are engaged in Environmental Justice and Sustainability (EJS) endeavors. CEJS will award two student fellowships in AY2023-2024 with a $2,500 stipend per student project.

Proposals may be submitted by individual students or by student teams; projects that include collaboration across disciplines or schools/colleges are particularly encouraged. CEJS student fellows are expected to produce a tangible scholarly product, such as an academic paper, a conference presentation, an artistic exhibit or presentation, or other proposed product as a result of their participation in this program.

Submit your application in PDF format by email to cietersy@seattleu.edu by noon on March 1, 2023.
