Ethical Reasoning in Action offers two grants to support new research and programming efforts focused on ethical reasoning as applied to personal, professional, and civic life. This support will encourage ongoing renewed engagement with ethical reasoning content and will broaden participation among JMU faculty and staff, and students with a faculty or staff sponsor. Grant applications are due on a rolling basis, the 1st of every other month (February, April, June, August, October, December). Applications are peer reviewed and decisions/awards are made by the first of the following month. Appilcation documents are also posted in the "Ethical Reasoning Resources" section.

ERiA offers a one- to two-year fellowship to at least one full-time faculty member and one full-time Student Affairs professional who engage with ERiA leadership, ERiA Council members, faculty, students, and staff through a wide range of activities and serve as liaisons to the campus community. Future candidates will wish to deepen their understanding of ethical reasoning in action and extend educational efforts on campus and beyond. Responsibilities will be negotiated with the Ethical Reasoning in Action Chair to achieve a balance between the needs of ERiA and expertise of the Fellow.
