Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund: deadline on 7th March 2023

New call for applications to the Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund for 2023/2024 ­

The Cardinal Foley Scholarship Fund (CFSF) supports education and living expenses of students from the Global South in Master and Postgraduate programmes in communication.

The aim is to broaden the base of qualified priests, religious and lay people with competence to further develop the communication ministry of local churches. It also intends to qualify Africans, Asians and Latin Americans for provision of proper formation for future Church communicators in local training institutes, communication (and theology) faculties and major seminaries.

The fund is named after Cardinal John Patrick Foley, former president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, honouring his enduring commitment to building the Church's competence in her communication involvement.

The screening committee that awards the scholar-ships is currently composed of representatives of the Dicastery for Communication, missio Aachen, the Institute of Missiology, the Catholic Communication Campaign of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and Adveniat.

Since 2012, eighty-one students received a Cardinal Foley Scholarship.

Priests, religious, permanent deacons and lay people, men and women, supported by their bishop and/or religious superior, and with a proven capacity (including practical experience) and interest in working in communications. The application needs to be presented by the respective Church authority. Applications sent by candidates themselves cannot be considered.
