FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is now accepting applications for its 2024 Seminary program.
FASPE Seminary is a fully-funded, two-week fellowship program in professional ethics and ethical leadership that approaches the study of professional ethics 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 grasp their responsibility as religious leaders in their field and broader communities to identify and confront the ethical issues currently facing religious leaders of all faiths. The program takes place in Germany and Poland at key sites of historical significance, allowing fellows to benefit from immersive, contextual learning.
Dates: June 21–July 5, 2024
Location: Berlin, Krakow, Oswiecim (Auschwitz)
Cost: All program costs are covered, including travel, lodging, and food.
Application deadline: January 2, 2024
