FASPE: Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics:
Summer Ethics Fellowships for Seminary and Divinity School Students
Deadline: December 20
The Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) seeks applications for its fellowships. FASPE Seminary, a component of a larger program that works with students in various fields, uses the conduct of the clergy in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust as a launching point for an intensive course of study on the ethical challenges of religious leadership. FASPE is predicated upon the power of place, and in particular the first-hand experience of visiting Auschwitz and traveling through Germany and Poland where Fellows study the past and consider how to apply the lessons of history as they confront the ethical challenges of today.
Fellowships include travel from New York to Berlin, Krakow and Oświęcim (Auschwitz) to examine topics like: “God’s shadow” in the wake of the Holocaust; religious faith and the temptations of prejudice; remembrance & forgiveness; and encouraging moral sensitivity. Fellowships will cover all program costs, including international and European travel, lodging, and food.
