Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics 2021

Written by Liam

The FASPE was created in response to the growing concern over the breakdown of ethical values, and it aims to challenge graduate students to recognize their responsibility to act as ethical leaders.

The FASPE offers fellowship programs to students pursuing professional degrees in five disciplines: law, business, medicine, Seminary, and journalism, and also to early-career professionals in these fields.

Candidates in each of FASPE’s programs get to spend two intensive weeks in Germany and Poland. They will also visit Auschwitz and the other key historical sites in Berlin and Krakow, and participate in rigorous seminars led by experts in their respective fields.
