PROGRAM: The aim of this program is to establish collaborative and mutually beneficial efforts among those working on bioethical issues in Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and North America. The program will involve conferences in Eastern Europe, the creation of bioethical materials to aid research and education in Eastern Europe, and Hastings Center Fellowships that will annually bring a small number of Eastern European scholars to the United States and Western Europe to pursue independent research on ethical issues in medicine, health care, and the life sciences. Eastern European scholars will spend approximately three months in residence at Hastings Center, perhaps also visiting other North American bioethics centers. The scholars, in addition to pursuing their own research, will enter into the daily life of the center including luncheon meetings and project meetings. They will then move to Swansea, Wales, for an additional three months of study with possible visits to the Institute of Medical Ethics, London, and the Institute for Bioethics, Masstricht, the Netherlands. Seven to 10 awards are made each year. Applications must be received four months prior to the proposed stay.
MONETARY SUPPORT: $1500-$3000 depending on length of stay
