KIE’s Kenan Summer Fellows program is now accepting project applications for summer 2014. Interested undergraduates should work with a faculty mentor to design a project that will examine “what does it mean to live an ethical life?” Support for chosen projects includes up to $5,000. Previous Kenan Summer Fellows have crafted projects that explored issues including identity and legality in international adoption, indigenous Greenlandic attitudes to globalization and climate change, and the use of incentives in the pharmaceutical industry. The fellowship can include an internship, a service learning project, or a physical journey to reconnect to ones own heritage.
For requirements, eligibility, and application instructions, visit the Kenan Summer Fellows page. To learn more about previous projects and how participants have examined what an ethical life might mean, read letters home from last year’s participants or the shared entries from the 2012 group.
