Summer Ethics Fellowship in Journalism
Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) is now accepting applications for its 2016 journalism program. FASPE Journalism uses the conduct of reporters and other media professionals during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive course of study on contemporary journalism ethics. FASPE is predicated upon the power of place. Fellows visit Auschwitz and other sites in Germany and Poland where they consider how to apply the lessons of history to the ethical challenges of journalism today.
FASPE Journalism is open to graduate students going into journalism, as well as working journalists early in their careers. Ten to 15 Fellows will be chosen for the 2016 program, which will run from Friday, May 20 through Thursday, June 2. All program costs, including travel to Europe from New York and back, European travel, lodging, and food are covered. FASPE Journalism is part of a program offering fellowships in several professional fields. Journalism Fellows travel and share some seminars with Business and Law Fellows.
FASPE programs are non-denominational. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
