Artificial intelligence, Crispr gene editing, and other powerful new technologies have profound implications for society. They will likely bring both potential benefits and safety concerns and have other ethical and social ramifications. How can we reap the benefits, while minimizing harms? What kind of society do we want to build with our new powers? What virtues and values should we preserve?

During its 50th anniversary year, The Hastings Center is launching The David Roscoe Award for an Early-Career Scholar’s Essay on Science, Ethics, and Society. This award, named in honor of a recent past chair of the Hastings board, will recognize an early-career scholar for a published essay on the social and ethical implications of advances in science and technology. A prize of $2,000 will be awarded.

How prizes are awarded

The essay must be written in English and published in a journal or general interest publication. The award is intended to celebrate a scholar who writes in a style that is accessible and engaging to a general audience and who is pursuing or has recently completed (within the last six years) a relevant academic degree.  Submissions published between January 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019 will be considered. Communications that rely on broadcast media, such as podcasts, are not eligible.

The winner will be announced in August 2019, and the award will be presented at a Hastings Center event at the annual meeting of the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) in Pittsburgh, Pa., October 24-27, 2019.
