Faculty Scholars Program

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research. Each year about three Greenwall Faculty Scholars are selected to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program. Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment in a tenure series or its equivalent at a university or non-profit research institute that has tax-exempt status in the United States. Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice.

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy.

Scholars and Alumni/ae attend twice-yearly meetings, where they present their work in progress, receive feedback and mentoring from the Faculty Scholars Program Committee and other Scholars, and have the opportunity to develop collaborations with other researchers. The ongoing involvement of Alumni/ae with the Program provides them ongoing opportunities for professional development and feedback and engages them in mentoring of younger Scholars.

The Greenwall Foundation particularly welcomes applicants from backgrounds that are under-represented in bioethics and academia.

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.

The Faculty Scholars Program Committee provides oversight and direction for the program and is involved not only with selection of the Scholars but with mentoring and faculty development activities.

Population(s) Served

The Greenwall Foundation’s bioethics grants program, Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics Dilemmas, supports research to help resolve an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical care, biomedical research, public health practice, or public policy. Our aim is to fund innovative projects that will have a real-world, practical impact. Priority for funding will be given to collaborative projects involving a bioethics scholar and persons with on-the-ground experience in organizations where bioethics dilemmas arise, for example, in clinical care, biomedical research, biotechnology innovation, or public service. Projects may be empirical, conceptual, or normative.

Projects with the following characteristics will not be funded under this program:

Projects that implement or make incremental improvements in established approaches to bioethics problems, build institutional infrastructure, or provide bioethics education, training or coursework.
Projects that simply describe or analyze bioethics issues or provide a conceptual framework, without making practical recommendations for resolving the issues. However, projects that present normative recommendations that are based on previous empirical research are encouraged.
Projects whose main goal is to convene or enhance a meeting, unless there is a well-developed plan to produce a peer-reviewed publication with consensus recommendations, guidelines, or best practices with a strong likelihood of real-world implementation.
Projects to support or extend ongoing or core activities of an organization.
Projects with a principal investigator that does not have one of the following graduate degrees: PhD, JD, MD, or an equivalent doctoral-level degree.
Applications from unaffiliated individuals, or from institutions that do not have tax-exempt status in the United States.
