FASPE is a set of innovative programs for students in professional schools designed to address contemporary ethical issues through a unique historical context. The Fellowships provide journalism, law, medical, and seminary students a structured program of study that initially focuses on the role of their chosen professions in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust and uses that historic focus as a framework for the consideration of contemporary ethical issues. Through an all-expenses-paid two-week summer intensive course in New York, Germany, and  Poland, students will explore such topics as The Rule of Law vs. Lawlessness; The Role and Limits of Bioethics; The Goals of Morality in the Face of Evil; The Responsibility to Report; and Ethical Limitations on Profit-Seeking.

Read the 2013 FASPE Journal to see a selection of papers from the 2013 Journalism, Law, Medical and Seminary programs. You can also see the earlier editions from 2012, 2011, and 2010 .

Lead support for FASPE is provided by C. David Goldman, Frederick and Margaret Marino, and the Eder Family Foundation. FASPE is also supported by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education.

FASPE operates under the auspices of the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
