We trained the current generation of moral leadership, too.

Graduate students at Georgetown can apply for selective fellowships at the KIE, particpate in dynamic exchanges at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other partner institutions in the DC area, design and teach undergraduate-level courses, coach our undergraduate ethics teams, and more. Meet former students who’ve ascended to the very highest ranks of ethics leadership today, and learn how the KIE helped them in that journey.
