About the Grant

The Sayles Faculty Research and Development in Applied and Professional Ethics supports Dartmouth faculty in the research and development of issues in ethics that will contribute to the faculty member’s teaching and research.  Faculty may use these funds in a variety of ways: enhance an already existing course or create a new; undertake professional development in an ethics-related area; present a paper at a conference or symposium; collaborate with co-authors or work with students. Projects may take place either off-campus or in Hanover. Faculty are allowed to apply for funding every two years.
