Fellows also participate in GISME’s academic symposia and its ongoing project to develop innovative tools and techniques to improve the teaching of applied and professional ethics. Fellows are required to produce at least one article of publishable quality during the term of the fellowship. The fellowship is renewable for a second year contingent on funding.
