Application Information

The Tocqueville Fellowship was designed for Notre Dame undergraduates interested in discussing fundamental questions about politics, culture, business, markets, philosophy, and religion. Tocqueville Fellows receive special invitations to meet, network, and dine with guests and scholars visiting Notre Dame. Fellows also work closely with the Program’s professors and staff to design and implement the Program’s events.

We seek undergraduates who are eager to participate in the Program’s events and who are enthusiastic about sharing their unique perspectives, academic interests, and personal talents with the Program.

The Tocqueville Fellowship is open to all Notre Dame, St. Mary's College, and Holy Cross College undergraduates.

Applications are open through December 11, 2020 for Spring 2021 semester.
