The Kristeller-Popkin Travel Fellowships

The Board of Directors of the Journal of the History of Philosophy is pleased to announce the Kristeller-Popkin Travel Fellowships program for 2009.

The fellowships are in recognition of the scholarship and generous support that two of the founding members of the Board have given to the Journal: Paul Oskar Kristeller, the renowned Renaissance scholar, and Richard H. Popkin, the first editor of this journal and noted historian of skepticism.

Candidates should have received their Ph.D. no more than six years prior to applying. Applicants who do not receive awards in one year's competition are invited to apply in successive years.

Application forms can be obtained from the JHP website ( or by writing to Professor Margaret J. Osler, Department of History, University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive, NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 1N4, Canada.
