The Murphy Institute Center for Ethics is pleased to announce Graduate Fellowships available to outstanding Tulane doctoral students who are writing dissertations in the area of ethics and public affairs. The application deadline is February 15, 2024.



The Center seeks applicants who have excelled in their fields of specialization, have demonstrated an interest in ethical questions that cut across disciplinary boundaries, and are likely to make significant contributions to teaching and scholarship in the fields of ethics and public affairs. Applicants should be enrolled in a doctoral program at Tulane University and be formally admitted to doctoral candidacy. The Center especially welcomes applications from students who will defend their dissertations during the fellowship year.  

Activities and Requirements

During the period of the fellowship, Graduate Fellows are expected to make substantial progress toward the completion of their degrees. They are also required to participate in the Center for Ethics speaker series, which is comprised of Faculty Seminars and public lectures.  Graduate Fellows are also encouraged to take part in the broader intellectual life of the Center by meeting with visiting Faculty Fellows.


Graduate Fellows receive a stipend of $25,000 for one academic year. Awards will be announced by early March 2024.
