Doyle Global Dialogue icon

Doyle Global Dialogue students write reflections and create social media content on their interreligious and intercultural experiences abroad, and they provide feedback on the reflections of their colleagues around the world.

Education and Social Justice Project icon

A collaboration with the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service, the Education and Social Justice Project provides summer research fellowships to travel abroad for in-depth examinations of innovative initiatives, particularly within Jesuit secondary and post-secondary institutions.

Pulitzer Center International Reporting Fellowship icon

As part of a collaboration with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting the Berkley Center selects one Georgetown student annually to receive a reporting fellowship. Projects investigate the religious dimension of an international issue, illuminating what is overlooked, untold, or misunderstood.

The Pulitzer fellowship is something I'm going to look back on as one of the most formative experiences of my life. It's motivated me to amplify voices that have gone unheard, whether in a future career in journalism or through nonprofit work.

It is hard to emphasize enough how much the experience impacted me. I came into Georgetown not knowing that I cared about research, yet ESJ helped me discover this passion for research to effect social change.

After the ESJ Project, I am very excited to write my sociology thesis. As taxing as interviews can be, I am excited to do my thesis because I know how to write a research paper. I know that I can do it.
