The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships for a full-time graduate student with a demonstrated interest in ethics, either as an area of scholarly research or as an important goal in life and career. The recipient will be pursuing an MA in philosophy, an MA with a concentration or certificate in professional ethics, or in some other graduate area in which ethics is an important part, such as nursing or neuroethics. Preference will be given to the students who can show significant financial need. The recipient will submit a one-page statement on how they perceive they will use ethics in the future. This is a two-year scholarship and the renewal for the second year is contingent upon the student maintaining a strong academic record.
