Pellegrino Student Scholars

The Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics seeks the next generation of student scholars to explore the Center’s distinct approach to clinical ethics.

One essay, to be selected by the faculty of the Pellegrino Center, will be presented at the annual Pellegrino Symposium, which takes place in the spring of every academic year. This essay may also qualify for submission to other essay contests such as the Academy of Medicine of Washington, DC’s Bioethics Essay Contest and the William B. Bean Student Research Award. In addition, students’ essays will qualify them to be considered for the Pellegrino Bioethics Award that is awarded to a graduating senior with distinguished work in bioethics.
