2016 Summer Ethics Fellowship for Seminary and Divinity School Students

Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) is now accepting applications for its 2016 program. FASPE Seminary uses the conduct of the clergy during the Holocaust and in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive course of study on the contemporary ethical challenges facing religious leaders. 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 issues of today.

FASPE Seminary is open to all seminary and divinity students. Ten to 15 Fellows will be chosen for the 2016 program, which will run from Friday, June 17 through Thursday, June 30. All program costs, including travel to Europe from New York and back, European travel, lodging, and food are covered. FASPE Seminary is part of a program offering fellowships in several professional fields. Seminary Fellows travel and share some seminars with Medical Fellows.

FASPE programs are non-denominational. Candidates of all religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Completed applications are due by December 22, 2015. To apply or to learn more about FASPE, please visit: If you have any questions, please contact Thorin R. Tritter, Managing Director of FASPE, at
