American Philosophical AssociationDeadline: June 30, 2019
The American Philosophical Association (APA) promotes the discipline and profession of philosophy, both within the academy and in the public arena. The APA supports the professional development of philosophers at all levels and works to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the value of philosophical inquiry. APA grantmaking programs include:
- Small Grant Fund: Grants support projects that benefit the field of philosophy. APA favors project proposals that ask for seed money for new projects and demonstrate the potential to obtain continuing support from other sources. It also favors projects that serve as a model for other institutions, and for which the grant recipient is willing to provide information about the project for others.
- Diversity and Inclusiveness Funding: Grants fund projects aiming 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. As the APA operates primarily in the US and Canada, programs must have a clear application to diversity in a US/Canada context. There is a particular interest in supporting programs that explicitly address more than one type of diversity (e.g., gender and race/ethnicity). The APA prefers to provide short-term funding to help new and innovative projects get off the ground rather than long-term, repeat, or sustaining funding for established projects.
Amount: Dependent on program, as follows:
- Small Grant Fund: A total of $25,000 is available, proposals are more likely to be successful if they request $5,000 or less
- Diversity and Inclusiveness Funding: A total of $20,000 is available to make one to two awards of $10,000 or $20,000.
Eligibility: APA members may submit a proposal. For APA membership information see: https://www.apaonline.org/general/register_member_type.asp
