D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership

Research Fellows

The D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership awards up to three fellowships each year for faculty to conduct research in their fields related to the topics of ethics and leadership.  All Viterbo University faculty members are eligible to apply for the fellowships.  The fellowships will provide each recipient with an award of $7,000.
