The Center for the Study of Ethics presents two University Faculty Fellows in Ethics awards each year to facilitate interdisciplinary ethics scholarship. The awards may include but are not limited to anthropology, art, astronomy, athletics, biology, chemistry, communication, ecology, economics, geology, history, humanities, interdisciplinary studies, literature, mathematics, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, religion and sociology.
Award recipients will each receive a stipend of $5,000. The stipend may be used at the fellow's discretion for hiring research assistants, purchasing books and other research materials, travel related to the research, working in cooperation with the department chair and/or dean to hire contingent faculty to reduce teaching load, etc. The stipend may not be used to buy computer equipment or software, as this is the responsibility of academic departments.
One University Faculty Fellow in Ethics for Liberal Arts and Science is appointed per academic year. Additionally one University Faculty Fellow in Ethics for the Professions is appointed per academic year. The fellowships may be held during a regular, sabbatical, or visiting professor year.
