The Emily Murray Student Scholarship offers selected undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue independent research in bioethics at The Hastings Center. While in residence, student scholars will research and write a portion of their scholarly project, and will give an informal lunchtime presentation on their research to The Hastings Center’s research scholars. Student scholars will also have opportunities to discuss their projects with individual research scholars, and to attend presentations given by other visiting scholars in residence.
The Hastings Center seeks undergraduate applicants in their junior or senior year with strong academic credentials and the ability to work independently. Applicants must be majoring in or have a strong demonstrated interest in the fields of philosophy or religion, and must be pursuing an independent scholarly project, such as a senior honors thesis or independent study, under the supervision of a faculty member at their college or university.
Emily Murray Student Scholarship recipients will be offered accommodation in a shared self-catering apartment at The Hastings Center for a residency of two to four weeks. They will receive a $750 stipend from the Emily Murray Fund, which will be applied toward the accommodation cost of $200 per week. (The stipend will be prorated for student scholars approved for residencies of less than two weeks.) Scholarship recipients are responsible for all other costs, such as travel and meals.
Application form and deadline: Applications are due at least three months before the start date of proposed stay. Applications for summer residence are due by April 15. For inquiries, please contact Vicki Peyton: firstname.lastname@example.org.
