American Philosophical Association: Diversity and Inclusiveness Grants

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

To that end, the organization invites 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 and 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.

Applicants must be APA members to be eligible for a grant through either program.

Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
