The selection process for our 2025-2027 cohort will open January 2025 and close April 2025.

Our Paul Ramsey Institute, the CBC’s signature educational initiative to further the thought and methods of Paul Ramsey, aims to educate and shape future generations of bioethics leaders. To date, 37 men and women have successfully completed the fellowship program and joined the ranks of Paul Ramsey Institute alumni.

In this spirit, the Paul Ramsey Institute brings together leading thinkers in the field of bioethics with current graduate students, medical students, law students, and early-career academics in order to prepare and equip these future leaders with an approach to bioethics that is grounded in moral responsibility. The Institute’s scholars and fellows gather three times each year.

Applicants must live in North America, must have already completed their undergraduate education and should be enrolled in graduate studies or be working in a bioethics related field.  Those selected must be willing and able to attend three in person meetings in California.  All travel expenses are paid.

Interested applicants can apply here.
