Summer Ethics Fellowship in Journalism

FASPE JournalismFASPE Journalism (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics in Journalism) is a fully-funded two-week summer program that uses the conduct of journalists in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive study of contemporary journalism ethics. FASPE Journalism 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 journalism’s ethical challenges.

In 2018, the program will take place from Monday, May 21 to Friday, June 1. (Fellows are expected to arrive in Europe by Sunday, May 20.) All program costs are covered, including round-trip travel from New York to Europe, European travel, lodging, and food. FASPE Journalism Fellows travel and share some seminars with Fellows in the FASPE Business and Law programs.

FASPE Journalism is open to current graduate students and working journalists who received an undergraduate degree between May 2013 and May 2017 or any graduate degree between May 2016 and January 2018.

Complete applications are due by Thursday, January 4, 2018.
