FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is a fully-funded, two-week summer program that uses the conduct of professionals in Nazi Germany as a launching point and backdrop for an intensive study of contemporary professional ethics. 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 challenges they will face in their careers.
Ten to 15 Fellows from each profession will be chosen to participate in FASPE 2017 through a competitive application process. Fellowships cover all program costs including round-trip travel from New York to Europe, European travel, lodging, and food. Business, Journalism, and Law Fellows travel together and share some seminars; Medical and Seminary Fellows travel together and share some seminars.

The dates for 2017 are:

  • Business, Journalism, and Law: May 21 – June 2, 2017
