We sponsor an annual Lonergan Lecture and an ongoing series of Graduate Seminars. We support younger scholars with our annual Frederick E. Crowe Bursary, with Research Assistantships funded by generous grants from the Denson Family Foundation and other partners, and with occasional grants to support the participation of our graduate students in academic conferences.

Lonergan Research Institute
The mission of the Lonergan Research Institute is to preserve, promote, develop and implement the achievement of Bernard Lonergan, S.J. An apostolate of the Jesuits in English Canada, we pursue our mission in collaboration with a global network of Lonergan centres and scholars, and in partnership with Regis College, the Jesuit faculty of theology at the University of Toronto.
About Bernard Lonergan
Bernard Joseph Francis Lonergan, SJ (17 December 1904 – 26 November 1984) was a Canadian Jesuit priest best known for his original contributions to philosophy and theological method. His intellectual program embraced philosophy, theology, macroeconomics, and the problems of method in the human sciences and historical scholarship
In addition to its essential activities of archival preservation and the production of Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan, the Institute conducts various activities and programs of special interest to students, scholars, and the wider community.
Although there is no formal Lonergan studies program at Regis College, there is a recommended body of courses for students interested in focusing on Lonergan.
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.
The Assistantships, in the amount of $6,000, renewable for each of up to four years, are awarded to outstanding doctoral students at Regis College or in allied programs at the Toronto School of Theology and the University of Toronto. Assistantships may also be available for post-doctoral students
