Summer Fellowships on Ethics
FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics), in collaboration with The Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, is accepting applications from graduate students in law, medicine, journalism, and religion for a fellowship that uses the conduct of professionals in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive two-week summer program on contemporary ethics in these fields. Fellowships include an all-expense-paid trip from New York to Berlin, Krakow, and Oświęcim (Auschwitz) where students will work with leading faculty to explore both the history and the ethical issues facing individuals in these professions today. All program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food, are covered.
Twelve to fifteen Fellows from each profession will be chosen to participate in FASPE 2014 through a competitive process that draws applicants from across the country. The dates for the 2014 trips are:
Journalism and Law: May 25 – June 5, 2014;
Medical and Seminary: June 15 – June 26, 2014
Completed applications must be received by December 20th for Seminary students and January 6, 2014 for Law, Journalism and Medical students. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
