Herbst Fellows are scholars drawn from students enrolled in the Engineering, Ethics & Society Certificate Program and embody the program’s commitment to ethical practice and engaged scholarship.

Herbst Fellows receive a $500 scholarship. During their fellowship year, Herbst Fellows join a cohort of peer-scholars who interrogate the ethical issues most important to them. They attend symposia and events as well as produce a profile of their work to be published in the Spring Colorado Engineering Magazine.
