Ethics center accepting fellowship applications for 2007-08

The Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard University is currently accepting applications from graduate students who are writing dissertations or are engaged in major research on topics in practical ethics, especially ethical issues in business, education, government, law, and medicine. Students should be enrolled in a doctoral program of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences or in one of Harvard’s professional Schools, and should have completed all course requirements and general examinations by September prior to the fellowship year (2007-08).

In professions such as law or medicine, where a doctoral dissertation is not required for an academic career, advanced students taking leaves of absence, recent graduates, and Harvard affiliates engaged in postgraduate training are also eligible. The application deadline is Nov. 15.
