The selection process for our 2021 cohort is open now through March 31, 2021.

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.
