Fellowship Program

Fellowship Program

The Alfred Delp Studiennetzwerk supports its fellows in their personal development alongside their studies and training. The four main objectives guide this support.



The study network thrives on the diversity of its members. Please feel free to pass on the application information to individuals who might also be interested in seeking support.



After their active sponsorship period, the fellows are welcomed into the circle of alumni of the Alfred Delp Studiennetzwerk. The opportunities for them to continue contributing to the network are diverse. Further information, as well as introductions to some alumni, can be found here.

At the commencement of the scholarship, each newly selected cohort of fellows convenes for orientation days over a weekend. During this time, they have the opportunity to acquaint themselves with one another, establish connections, familiarize themselves with the purpose and customs of the study network, and receive an introduction to Ignatian spirituality. The costs for the orientation days, including expenses for travel to and from the event, are covered by the study network. The first orientation days will take place from September 27th to 29th, 2024, at the Zukunftswerkstatt in Frankfurt am Main. Applicants should reserve this weekend accordingly.

Annually, all fellows convene over a weekend between the winter and summer semesters to exchange ideas amongst themselves and engage with a significant socio-political or religious theme. The selection of themes and program development is determined by the leadership team in collaboration with active fellows. The costs for these annual meetings, including expenses for travel to and from the event, are covered by the study network. The inaugural annual conference of the fellows will take place from March 7th to 9th, 2025, at the Kardinal König Haus in Vienna. Applicants should reserve this weekend accordingly.

The application deadline for the first cohort has already passed. Those interested in the second cohort of the Alfred Delp Study Network can apply from March 1 to July 13, 2025. All information regarding the application process can be found here. If you have any questions, Cornelius Wilke is available at cornelius.wilke(at) We look forward to receiving your application!
