Call for Applications: McDonald-Agape Fellowship in Bioethics at Georgetown University

August 25, 2021

Through a generous grant from the McDonald-Agape Foundation, The Kennedy Institute of Ethics is pleased to announce this call for applications for the 2022-2024 McDonald-Agape Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics. The Fellowship is designed to promote the academic career of a junior scholar with outstanding potential for scholarship and leadership in bioethics. We are inviting applications from exceptional candidates for this two-year fellowship, which will begin in July 2022.  Priority will be given to physicians, but those with other terminal degrees are also eligible. Some previous education in bioethics is required, but a formal degree in ethics is not necessary. The program is highly selective. Only one candidate will be accepted each year.
