Past Opportunities

Latino Studies Scholars Program

Notre Dame is proud to announce the launch of the Latino Studies Scholars Program (LSSP). The merit-based scholarship and accompanying curriculum for undergraduate students is designed to attract and shape leaders working to support and empower Latino communities. The scholarship was created by the Institute for Latino Studies (ILS) as part of its mission to advance the understanding of the fastest growing and youngest population in the United States and the Catholic Church. ILS strengthens Notre Dame’s mission to prepare transformative leaders in education, the professions, the arts, economic and civic participation, faith, and family life among Latinos and all members of our society.

Scholars are awarded $25,000 per year for four years of undergraduate study at Notre Dame, along with up to $5,000 per summer for three summers to fund enrichment activities such as internships, conferences, and study abroad. Notre Dame seeks to attract the best and brightest students with an interest in impacting the Latino community. Both students of Latino and non-Latino origin are eligible, and, once selected, students may enroll in any college or major at Notre Dame. The most significant qualification will be a student’s demonstrated interest in and commitment to the future of Latino communities in the United States. Candidates will also show an interest in Latino Studies at Notre Dame.         

Overseen by the University’s Institute for Latino Studies, in partnership with the Enrollment Division, the program will provide a curriculum, internships, and research opportunities to engage the cohort of scholars in Latino Studies.

“Leaders in education, the professions, the arts, the Church, business, and politics cannot be successful if they lack core knowledge about Latinos, the fastest-growing and youngest population in the United States. The Latino Studies Scholars Program is at the heart of efforts at the Institute for Latino Studies and Notre Dame to equip our students with the training they need to be transformative leaders in the Catholic Church and society,” says Timothy Matovina, Co-Director of the ILS and Professor of Theology.

As a leading Catholic research institution, Notre Dame recognizes the importance of the growing Latino community in the United States and its impact on the future of the country and the Catholic Church.

“Through the Latino Studies Scholars Program, Notre Dame is demonstrating its commitment to develop the next generation of leaders who are committed to expand the common good,” says Luis Ricardo Fraga, Co-Director of the ILS, Notre Dame Professor of Transformative Latino Leadership, and Joseph and Elizabeth Robbie Professor of Political Science. “One cannot be such a leader in any sector without a deep understanding of Latino communities, the largest ethnoracial group in the country and in the Catholic Church. It is often said that leaders are not made; they are born. We are convinced that whatever the origin of leaders, they must be supported to develop to the full range of their abilities. LSSP is designed to help the next generation of leaders reach that potential as a fundamental part of their undergraduate studies.”

The University expects to enroll a cohort of four funded Latino Studies Scholars in the program’s first year (2017-18) with a planned increase of up to 16 Scholars in future years.

As with all merit scholarships at Notre Dame, selections for the Latino Studies Scholars Program are made as part of the enrollment process. A completed application for admission is used to consider students for merit aid. To be eligible for consideration, a student must apply in either Restrictive Early Action with a complete application by November 1, or in Regular Decision with a complete application by January 1.

The Department of History in conjunction with the Higgins Labor Program at the Center for Social Concerns seeks history majors to ​participate in CHiRP, the Community History Research Project​.

​American Studies majors may contribute to ​the project by volunteering over the course of the semester or by seeking permission to register for ​HIST 48000​, a 1-credit graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis.

If you are interested in participating or simply​ learning more about this initiative, please ​contact Dan Graff directly via email at dgraff@nd.edu. An initial meeting will be held the week of September 26, so please let Prof. Graff know your interest as soon as possible.
