Dale and Elizabeth Hanson Fellowship in Ethics
- Scholarship Description
- Purpose: The fellowship, supported by a generous gift from Dale and Elizabeth Hanson, is designed to support student research in ethics. This fellowship is designed to allow students to pursue research in ethics that might be an extension of work they undertook in a class or to examine ethical questions as they relate to their major or more generally to explore issues that they would not be able to examine through current course offerings. Activities supported by this fellowship include, but are not limited to, traditional academic research. All fellowship recipients will work with a designated faculty member who will oversee the projects and organize communications between recipients to encourage the exchange of ideas. Recipients will be expected to produce some product at the end of the fellowship. A likely outcome would be an academic paper, but other possibilities can be discussed with the faculty director. Recipients may also be asked to make a public presentation based on their research.
Funding: Awards will be given annually. Successful applicants will receive a stipend of $1600 and can apply for up to $500 to defer the cost of research materials and other expenses. The stipend is approximately four weeks of full-time work at the current student wage and is designed to reflect the approximate time commitment that recipients will give to their projects, though naturally they will determine how to allocate their time.
See website for this year's deadlines.
Eligibility: This fellowship is intended for freshmen, sophomores and juniors for use during the summer of the year they apply (though students participating in summer academic programs may apply to use the fellowship in the term they are on leave in the subsequent academic year). Priority may be given to more advanced students. Students in any major are eligible. All applicants must be in good academic standing.
Selection Criteria: Dale and Elizabeth Hanson Fellowships will be awarded to qualified students to carry out independent research in ethics related to any field taught at Carleton College. Winners will be selected based on the quality and originality of the proposal and the qualifications of the applicant to successfully complete the project.
