Purpose: 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 three Greenwall Faculty Scholars are selected to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program.

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 and engages them in mentoring of younger Scholars.

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.
