Harvard College students are eligible to apply for a Lester Kissel Grant in Practical Ethics to support research and writing that makes contributions to the understanding of practical ethics. A number of grants will be awarded on a competitive basis for projects to be conducted during the summer of 2014. The projects may involve research for senior theses, case studies for use in courses, essays or articles for publication, or similar scholarly endeavors that explore issues in practical ethics.

Applications should include an outline of the Project, and a description of the work to be undertaken in its pursuit; a short statement of the Project's potential value to the student and to the understanding of practical ethics generally, and an estimated budget identifying the expenses expected to be incurred.

The grant will provide the recipient with an award ranging from $500 to $3000, depending on the scope of the project and the estimated related expenses. Funds may be used to cover the project's expenses or, alternatively, as a stipend to enable recipients to pursue research in lieu of summer employment.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 4, 2014, and the names of the successful applicants will be announced by Tuesday, April 15, 2014. Grant recipients are expected to submit a written report on their grant experience.

Applications should be sent electronically to Undergraduate Fellowship Coordinator Tara Skurtu at undergrads@ethics.harvard.edu.
