Interdisciplinary Curricular Fellowships

The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy will be using Interfolio Review, Promotion, and Tenure to review the applications for the Interdisciplinary Curricular Fellowships.

Faculty interested in applying for a fellowship should notify their School/College.

The Loyola University Chicago Interdisciplinary Curricular Fellowship program is designed to provide all full-time faculty with the opportunity to develop an innovative interdisciplinary course that engages students from different schools. Fellows in this program will receive a $4,000 stipend to work with a faculty member (or members) in a partner school/college and/or department to develop interdisciplinary academic courses that would be relevant to students from both schools.  This stipend may be split with the collaborative faculty member(s) if desired. 

The Interdisciplinary Curricular Fellowship will give faculty the opportunity to:

  • Learn from and with expert colleagues in other fields who can help to develop curriculum and pedagogical approaches on a common topic from an interdisciplinary perspective
  • Learn how to engage in interdisciplinary teaching and course development

Prior to applying for the fellowship, the applicant should engage with a faculty member (or members) in the partner department/school to develop goals for the course.  There is an expectation that the course will be offered to students in both the fellow’s department and the partner department.  The proposal will need to pass through the curricular review process of the applicant’s department and in the partner department as well.


A university panel selected by the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy (FCIP) reviews Interdisciplinary Curricular Fellowship applications and makes recommendations to the Provost regarding their funding as resources are available.

  • Proposals are not currently being accepted for AY 2024-2025.

Questions about applications for fellowships should be directed to the department chair. Additional help is available from The Office of Faculty Affairs.
