Jocelyn Boryczka, PhD
Welcome to the Office of Scholarly Development, located in the Provost’s Office. We provide outreach, information, and guidance to high-achieving Fairfield University students and recent graduates across various external and Fairfield University-specific fellowships and grants.

These opportunities support domestic and international experiences before and after graduation. They also include fellowships for formal degree studies, independent research funding, teaching placements abroad, and support for public service and creative arts projects, among many other possibilities.

Our office, in collaboration with faculty and other partners, aims to support Fairfield students as they reach for the magis or "the more," by complementing their intellectual and personal development through thoughtful exploration and pursuit of such competitive opportunities.

We are here to provide guidance throughout the application process. We look forward to meeting students at information sessions throughout the academic year and connecting one-on-one to discuss goals and interests.

We invite you to contact Associate Vice Provost for Scholarly, Creative, and Community Engagement Jocelyn Boryczka, PhD, or Program Coordinator Kim Baer for more information. We are located in Canisius Hall, Room 300 and can be reached by phone at 203-254-4000 ext. 2292.
