The Lindmark Fellowship in Ethics is available to two Saint John's students, holding junior standing, to complete a full-time, on-campus summer research project in professional ethics.
Fellowship recipients receive $7,000 for their efforts, with on-campus room and board expenses paid by the student. Please note, the research topic of "professional ethics" is broadly construed to include ethical issues in occupations or professions. This year, projects will be prioritized such that one fellow will be selected to represent an issue in business ethics, while the other would represent a broader ethical issue in his respective field of study.
All full-time Saint John's University juniors from any academic discipline are eligible to apply. Eligible students will have held junior standing at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year. As Lindmark Fellows, each student will work full-time, approximately 40 hours per week across a ten-week timeframe starting early June and ending mid-August 2017 (tentatively June 5 - August 11, 2017). Fellows will live on campus and will not be allowed to have any other paid employment during the ten-week fellowship. Twice per month, Fellows will meet with their fellowship faculty advisors.
Please contact Laura Hammond, Assistant Director of Experiential Learning & Community Engagement, with any questions regarding the Lindmark Fellowship in Ethics. The application deadline for the Fellowship has been extended to Monday, March 13, 2017. On-campus interviews, or internet-based interviews for students studying abroad, may be requested thereafter. If interviews are necessary, selection committee members expect to have completed all interviews by the end of March, with notification to selected Fellows by the early April.
