10 students selected

Responding to the large pool of extraordinary applicants for the 2017-18 Hackworth Fellowships, the Center selected 10 seniors for fellowships, more than doubling the usual number. Hackworth Fellows are seniors who work on projects in applied ethics that are either focused on campus concerns or are connected to the Ethics Center's engagement with matters in Silicon Valley and beyond. 

This year the Ethics Center had more applicants for the fellowship than ever before. For the 2017-18 academic year, the Center is also revising the way it handles the fellowships in order to place fellows not only with the Campus Ethics Program but also with the Center's programs in Leadership and Business Ethics, Government Ethics, and Internet Ethics. 

The following students will be Hackworth Fellows for the 2017-18 school year: 

Government Ethics: 

-- Christine Abrahamians, a Political Science major from Fremont, Calif., will be working on the theme of civic virtue with Hana Callaghan, the Director of Government Ethics at the Ethics Center
