The 2009 Ethics Center Student Fellowship application deadline has passed. Read the following and click here for a sample of what the application will look like in 2010.

Given the chance, how would you change the world?

Become an Ethics Center Student Fellow and spend next summer working on issues that matter to you in the international organization of your choice.

A Three-Part Experience

  • Spring 2009: Take a course of your choosing as academic preparation for your internship.
  • Summer 2009: Implement a project of your own design as an intern in the organization of your choice, anywhere in the world. Tackle issues of international importance like coexistence, human rights, international law, hunger relief, gender equity, development, education, global health, AIDS prevention, refugee assistance, or something even we haven't thought of!
  • Fall 2009: Take a course with the other Fellows to put the internship experience in perspective.

Ethics Center Student Fellows receive a $4000 stipend ($3500 if internship is in the U.S.) intended to cover travel and modest living expenses for a summer internship.

Ethics Center Student Fellows must be Brandeis sophomores or juniors in the fall of 2008. Students from any major are eligible. We are pleased to consider applications from those who have previously applied.

Monday, October 6 - Preliminary project proposals due (optional, but strongly encouraged)
Monday, November 3 – All applications must be complete in the Ethics Center office by 5 p.m.
