FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is now accepting applications for its 2019 Seminary program.
FASPE Seminary is a fully-funded, two-week fellowship program in professional ethics and ethical leadership that begins by examining the actions and choices of German and international clergy in enabling Nazi policies. It then draws on this historical example to help Seminary Fellows both grasp their role as influencers in their professional, religious, and broader communities as well as identify and confront the ethical issues currently facing all religious leaders. The program takes place in Germany and Poland at the sites of Nazi actions, allowing Fellows to benefit from the power of the place and immersive, contextual learning.
DETAILS Program Dates: Saturday, June 15 – Friday, June 28, 2019. Fully-funded: All program costs are covered, including travel, lodging, and food. Interdisciplinary: FASPE Seminary Fellows travel with Fellows in the FASPE Medical program. Itinerary: Fellows will travel to Berlin, Krakow, and Oswiecim (the location of the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz). Eligibility: Applicants must be currently enrolled in a graduate program and preparing to serve as religious leaders (whether in a seminary, divinity, rabbinical, Muslim Chaplaincy, or other program) OR have received such a degree between May 2017 and January 2019.
FASPE programs are non-denominational. Candidates of all nationalities, religions, and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
