The Vision of Mercy Fellowship offers undergraduate students a high-impact, community-based experience rooted in Salve Regina's mercy mission. Fellows work with local, domestic or international organizations committed to the materially poor, to peace and justice, and to advocacy and action related to the critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy.
The fellowship supports undergraduate students who desire to deepen their commitment to the vision and works of mercy through a summer learning experience of five or more weeks. These experiences are an opportunity for students to discern how best to dedicate their lives – professionally or vocationally – to the work of mercy. All students who will be returning to Salve Regina for the following academic year are eligible.
The fellowship provides up to $3,000 in grant funding to recipients who work approximately 30 hours per week with a nonprofit organization locally, domestically or abroad. Funding is intended to help cover costs such as travel, lodging and program fees. Up to three fellowships may be awarded each year.
