The Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarships is now open for applications. Visiting Scholars will spend four weeks at the Ethox Centre in Oxford, pursuing a research project on a topic relating to one of the Ethox Centre’s four main research areas: global health ethics; clinical ethics; public health ethics; and research ethics.

The Scholarships are awarded to post-doctoral or early-career researchers. The value of each scholarship is up to £2,500, and is intended to assist scholars with travel and living costs during their visit.

Scholars will engage in the academic life of Ethox by participating in the Centre's activities (e.g. attend lectures and seminars), and will be invited to present at the Ethox Seminar, and write a guest post for the Ethox blog.

The deadline for applications is 21 April 2024. For more information about the scheme and how to apply please visit the Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarship.

Previous scholars have explored topics ranging from assisted reproductive technologies, community-based palliative care in refugee camps, global Health Inequalities and the NHS, and the effect of AI and big data systems on human agency and moral responsibility in healthcare. Feedback from and information about previous scholars can be found on the Caroline Miles Scholarship web pages.

Caroline Miles (1929-2006) played a key role in the founding and development of the Ethox Centre. Her vision and also her generous financial support have made possible the creation of the Caroline Miles Scholarships.
