American Philosophical Association Invites Proposals for Diversity and Inclusiveness, Small Grants

The American Philosophical Association supports the professional development of philosophers at all levels and works to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the value of philosophical inquiry.

To that end, the organization currently is accepting applications for two programs:

Small Grant Fund — Awards of up to $5,000 will be awarded to projects that benefit the field of philosophy. A total of $25,000 will be awarded through the program.

Diversity and Inclusiveness Funding — In keeping with the mission and goals of the association’s longstanding commitment to addressing a serious lack of demographic diversity in philosophy, a total of $20,000 is available to fund projects designed to increase the presence and participation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, people of low socioeconomic status, and other underrepresented groups at all levels of philosophy. Projects must have a clear application to diversity in a U.S./Canada context. Priority will be given to programs that explicitly address more than one type of diversity (e.g., gender as well as race/ethnicity). Proposals totaling $10,000 to $20,000 are strongly preferred, as the APA anticipates funding either one or two projects through the program.

To be eligible for a grant through either program, applicants must be an APA member.

See the American Philosophical Association website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously funded projects.

Deadline: June 30, 2019
