Recipients are responsible for their own travel and any other expenses incurred.
Project criteria: Projects at any stage of development are welcome. Topic must be in the history of philosophy, which we construe expansively to include any historical tradition of reasoning via a wide range of methodologies, including religious intellectual traditions, intellectual history, history of political thought, history of philosophical approaches to the natural world, etc.
When: The opportunity window for a summer research stay is open from approximately May 15 to August 15, 2023. Research stays are for a one-month period (ideally starting on the 1st or 15th day of the month, but we may be able to provide some flexibility). The application form will ask you to specify which dates you prefer.
Eligibility: Applicants must have a PhD and affiliation with an academic institution, either internationally or domestically. This program is not open to graduate students. If you will need a visa to travel to the US, please investigate before applying whether you will realistically be able to secure the necessary documents before your planned travel.
Deadline: Applications will be reviewed starting immediately, on a rolling basis, and the program will close when we have filled all available slots.
