Research Projects

CCIH provides year-long research project funding to full-time Loyola University faculty for topics concerned with or connected to the Catholic intellectual heritage. The purpose of this support is to facilitate advanced scholarly study of Catholic thought as it touches upon the arts, humanities, and sciences. These research projects are expected to culminate in the publication of a journal article or book; however, alternative project results are welcome. Such study normally involves a semester or year-long research commitment.
