The Catholic
Imagination Fellowship

June 5–July 16, 2023

I think the best way to describe the Fellowship to someone is with the word ‘insane’: insanely good, insanely challenging, insanely faithful, insanely worth it.

The Fellows of the 2022 Catholic Imagination Fellowship

The Catholic Imagination Fellowship is a six-week, paid, integrated summer work-study program for university-aged students. It seeks to ‘thicken’ the moral imagination of participants and to equip them with practical skills to evangelize through narrative and beauty.

By the end of the fellowship, participants will have:

  • Formed deep and lasting friendships with other participants & faculty
  • Familiarized themselves with the essential artistic and poetic expression of the Catholic faith
  • Learned to effectively utilize beauty and narrative to transform their own communities


Students must be:

  • Enrolled full-time at an accredited College, University, or institute of higher learning
  • A member of a parish of the Diocese of Tulsa & Eastern Oklahoma
  • Able to commit to full-time work and study from Jun 5th–Jul 16th, 2023
