Fellows chosen for the 2007-09 term will join an outstanding inaugural group of fellows who started in August 2006, as well as senior fellow Frances Kamm, one of the world's leading moral philosophers, who will be in residence at the Center during the 2007-08 academic year. Detailed information about the fellowship program, our
current fellows, and how to apply is available at

Applications are due no later than October 16, 2006. Please note that this deadline is several months earlier than last year's.
