Arsht Special Projects

As part of the Arsht Ethics Initiatives, the University of Miami Ethics Programs have set aside a limited amount of funds to support small, special projects or opportunities that have a high probability of leading to concrete and high-visibility deliverables. These might include

•      Ethics publications, films, etc.
•      Presentations on ethics at important national or international conferences
•      Ethics curricula or syllabi

Awards (generally of $2,500 or less) may be applied to travel expenses, publication costs, conference registration fees, software and other expenses if, in the view of an Ethics Programs review committee, the project is overwhelmingly likely to produce a product of the sorts itemized above. Awards will be listed on this page. Acceptance of an award constitutes a commitment to acknowledge the Arsht Ethics Initiatives and the University of Miami Ethics Programs in any publication.

Prospective applicants should describe their project briefly in an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), after which they will be contacted by Ethics Programs leadership. Applicants will be asked to submit a proposal, detailed budget and CV.

Note that while many projects are worthy, virtuous and/or involve good deeds, the goal of the Arsht Ethics Initiatives is not to serve as a social service agency but, rather, to foster research and education related to ethics itself.
