The annual Frederick E. Crowe Bursary has been established by the Lonergan Research Institute at Regis College in honor of Frederick E. Crowe, S.J. Father Crowe’s lifetime of loving labor on and for the ideas of Bernard Lonergan includes his establishment of the Toronto Lonergan Center, the precursor of the Lonergan Research Institute, in 1971.

The purpose of the Bursary is to encourage Lonergan studies on the part of younger scholars. The Bursary will be awarded to the proposal that best promises to advance Lonergan studies. Possible uses include but are not limited to supporting events, course projects, conference attendance, and the preparation and publication of scholarly work.
