The Fordham/Santander Universities International Scholarship in Ethics Education

Ethics and Society Master Level Training

The Santander Universities/Fordham International Student Scholarship in Ethics Education provides financial support for international students interested in masters-level study in Ethics and Society at Fordham University, New York City, USA. Graduate courses administered by the Fordham University Center for Ethics Education provides students with cross-disciplinary learning experiences integrating moral foundations in humanities and sciences and their application to contemporary social issues.

Please visit our website to learn more about the Master's in Ethics and Society program. This program is made possible through a generous gift from Santander Universities’ global division, a major social–responsibility initiative created by Banco Santander to advance the bank’s goal of expanding global education.

Scholarship recipients enroll in Ethics and Society courses and participate in a broad range of the Center for Ethics Education events, including symposia, ethics lectures, the Fordham University HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute and other Center events.

  • Tuition: The Scholarship will cover the costs of tuition for approved Ethics and Society courses and administrative graduate school fees.
