The program began at the inspiration and with the generosity of the John and Pat Figge family. They launched their first undergraduate student research fellowship under the auspices of the Woodstock Theological Center in 2009. In the decade (plus) since its inception, the program found a new home in Georgetown College’s Catholic Studies Program and grown. Its aim, however, has remained constant: to encourage Hilltop undergraduates to engage in deep, serious, and consequential “theological reflection on the human problems of today.”
