The competition for this award, which was organized by the Philosophy Department at West Chester University, was open to all WCU students. Each entrant had to write a paper on a topic of Applied Ethics (including Medical Ethics, Bioethics, Professional Ethics, Business Ethics, Environmental Ethics, Animal Ethics, etc.). Julia (a Mathematics major in the Pure Mathematics BS Accelerated track) won the $300 scholarship first prize by writing an applied ethics paper entitled, “Ethics of Care and the Good Life.”

This award was also announced in an end-of-semester video from the Philosophy Department, and you can find out more about the award there.

A big congratulations to Julia, for her exemplary example of interdisciplinary scholarship.
