American Philosophical Association: Diversity & Inclusiveness in Philosophy

Grant Amount: Up to $20,000
Deadline: June 30, 2023
Category: Philosophy,
Additional Information

The American Philosophical Association, in keeping with its mission and goals and the association’s longstanding commitment to addressing philosophy’s serious lack of demographic diversity, will make available up to $20,000 in fiscal year 2024 to fund one or two 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. The APA board of officers strongly prefers proposals that convincingly demonstrate their potential to decisively impact diversity and inclusion within philosophy.

As the APA operates primarily in the US and Canada, programs must have a clear application to diversity in a US/Canada context. The board wishes to express its particular interest in supporting programs that explicitly address more than one type of diversity (e.g., gender and race/ethnicity). The board will give preference to projects based at under-resourced institutions.

All APA members are invited to submit proposals.

The APA board anticipates funding one project at $20,000 or two projects at $10,000 each through this program in FY2024. The board of officers will review proposals and make funding decisions in November 2023. Proposed projects should commence no earlier than January 1, 2024. The APA will disburse grant funds by June 30, 2024.
