Rudis Fellowship in Comparative Constitutions
The Anthony and Mary Rudis Research Scholarship supports student interest in the comparative study of constitutions. Recipients of the scholarship will write a research paper during the 2011-2012 academic year under the guidance of a faculty member in the Department of History or the Department of Political Science.
The focus of the research paper is the comparative study of constitutions. Its purpose is to develop an understanding of the historical and political definition of constitutional rights, concentrating on the ways in which societies secure, or fail to secure, the rights of their citizens. For further information, see this description (pdf).
For a description of a recent Rudis Fellowship project, see this article in Loyola's Endeavors magazine.
