Applications for the Edmond J. Safra Graduate Fellowships in Ethics 2014-2015 are being accepted through Nov. 15. Applicants are invited from graduate students who are writing dissertations or are engaged in major research on topics in practical ethics, especially ethical issues in architecture, business, education, government, law, medicine, public health, public policy, and religion.

The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics seeks applicants who have excelled in their fields of specialization, have demonstrated an interest in questions of value that cut across disciplinary boundaries, and who are likely to make significant contributions to teaching and scholarship in practical and professional ethics.

Students should either be enrolled in a Harvard doctoral program; enrolled in or a recent graduate of a Harvard professional degree program that does not require a doctoral dissertation for an academic career (such as law or medicine); or a current Harvard affiliate who is engaged in postgraduate training or in appropriate graduate training at another school and has no academic or professional commitments in 2014-2015.  Advanced students taking leaves of absence from one of these approved programs are also eligible.  All course requirements and general examinations must be completed before the start of the fellowship year. Students taking a full or partial course load in either semester of the fellowship year are ineligible.

Questions about the Graduate Fellowship Program can be directed to Erica Jaffe Redner at erica@ethics.harvard.edu.
