McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society Graduate Fellowship
In a workshop that meets twice a month, fellows will present their research and reflect upon the ethical questions it raises substantively and methodologically. In addition, the workshop this year will address broad, enduring questions about ethics and the academy.
The cohort will consider the foundational values (e.g., justice, equality, freedom) underlying debates about these questions, and consider the tensions among them both in theory and in the policies that shape academic life. Through the workshop, fellows will gain exposure to an array of perspectives and methodologies for thinking about ethical issues specific to their research, within the academic community, and more broadly within society.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,000 per quarter for three quarters.
Graduate students in PhD programs from across the university, in all fields of study.
The fellowship is a commitment for the entirety of the academic year, and fellows must attend each of the workshop sessions. Fellows will attend a workshop that meets twice a month each quarter (on alternating Fridays, 10:00-11:30am) to share their work in progress, hear from visiting speakers, and discuss topical readings.
