The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics encourages teaching and research about ethical issues in the professions and public life. Its graduate fellowships support outstanding Harvard graduate and professional students who are writing dissertations or are engaged in major research on topics in practical ethics, especially ethical issues in areas such as architecture, business, education, government, law, medicine, public health, public policy, and religion.
Eligible 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 2015-2016. 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. The Center 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. Some successful applicants will have a strong background in moral philosophy or political thought; others will be grounded in fields of public policy or professional practice.
