Exceptionally motivated students minoring in Phronesis have the opportunity to join the Phronesis Fellows. The Fellows participate in numerous activities supporting the intellectual life of the program and assist in organizing public lectures and panels sponsored by Phronesis and The Hobby Center for Public Policy. Each Fellow is nominated by a Phronesis faculty member and must submit a written statement indicating their interest in the Phronesis program. Fellows receive a $500 stipend each semester for their participation.
Phronesis Fellows meet together to discuss and debate selected writings from nationally celebrated professors and public intellectuals. Discussions are led by the Fellows, encouraging them to develop their analytical, rhetorical, and leadership skills. Fellows also meet with visiting scholars in small colloquia to discuss readings. In the past year, Phronesis has invited such scholars as Sister Helen Prejean, Dr. Jay Winter, Dr. Debra Nails, and Dr. Joseph Carens.
