Linda L. Fowler, professor of government and the Frank J. Reagan '09 Chair in Policy Studies, and Ronald M. Green, the Eunice & Julian Cohen Professor for the Study of Ethics and Human Values and director of the Dartmouth Ethics Institute, have been awarded fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
The Guggenheim Foundation appoints Fellows "on the basis of distinguished achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment." The program provides support so recipients can work with as much creative freedom as possible.
Fowler's Guggenheim will support her study of the decline of institutional competence in U.S. foreign affairs. A scholar of presidential politics and U.S. campaign and election strategy, Fowler is often sought by news outlets for her insight during national elections. Her research interests include legislative politics, public policy, interest groups, and participation.
Green's fellowship will support his examination of ethical, religious, and literary perspectives on genetic enhancement. He has written extensively on bioethics, business ethics, genetics and ethics, and all the emergent issues of reproductive ethics (in vitro fertilization, cloning, and stem-cell research). He is the author of six books and more than 125 articles in theoretical and applied ethics.
"It is wonderful to see Linda Fowler and Ron Green each recognized for their distinctive and far-reaching scholarship with this prestigious award," notes Carol Folt, Dartmouth's dean of the faculty of arts and sciences and professor of biological sciences. "Both of these professors also are leaders whose scholarship, energy, and dedication to developing programs for students and faculty have enhanced the curriculum and enriched the intellectual life of the campus for many years."
The 2005 fellowship winners include 186 artists, scholars, and scientists selected from more than 3,000 applicants for awards totaling more than $7.1 million. Since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has granted almost $240 million in fellowships to more than 15,500 individuals.
