FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) offers fellowships to students pursuing professional degrees in business, journalism, law, medicine and seminary, as well as to early-career professionals in these fields. Fellows in each of FASPE’s five programs spend two intensive weeks in Germany and Poland, visiting Auschwitz and key historical sites in Berlin and Krakow, and participating in rigorous seminars led by experts in their respective fields. Fellows begin their studies by examining the roles their professional counterparts played in Germany and elsewhere from 1933-1945, and then draw on historical, cultural, philosophical, literary and discipline-specific sources to explore the ethical issues facing their fields today.

Fellowships are fully-funded, and all program costs are covered, including the equivalent of round-trip travel from New York to Europe, as well as all European travel, lodging and food.

The 2022 Business and Law programs will run from May 27, 2022 to June 10, 2022.

The 2022 Medical, Seminary, and Journalism programs will run from June 24, 2022 to July 8, 2022.

Eligibility criteria for each program can be found here.

The deadline to apply is January 2, 2022 at 11:59PM EST.
