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 2011.
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.
Two awards of up to $4,000 (depending upon the project budget) are offered annually to young scholars in the history of philosophy to defray expenses while traveling to do research. Applicants must have received their PhD, but may not have received them 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.
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2010. Awards will be announced in April, 2011.

Jan Wojcik Memorial Prize
The Journal of the History of Philosophy is pleased to announce the Jan Wojcik Memorial Prize. Made possible by the generosity of Jan's children and their families, this annual $4,000 award is intended to further the research of a graduate student enrolled and resident in a North American PhD program and working on a dissertation in the history of philosophy (all periods). The prize will be given to fund either:
(a) Travel to foreign archives or libraries to pursue dissertation-related research
(b) Travel to present a paper accepted at a foreign conference or seminar. [End Page 413]
An application should include a one-page description of the applicant's dissertation topic and two letters of support. Moreover, if the travel is for research purposes, the application should also include a description (not to exceed two pages) indicating what research the applicant will be carrying out abroad and how travel will further that work. If the travel is to present at a conference or seminar, the application should include a copy of the paper to be presented and a copy of the notice indicating that the paper has been accepted.
Electronic applications only. All materials should be sent to Professor Steven Nadler, email@example.com.
The deadline for applications is November 1, 2010.
