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 2012.
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 (http://philosophy.wisc.edu/jhp) or by writing to Professor Lloyd P. Gerson, Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto, 170 St. George, Toronto, Ontario, M5R 2M8, Canada; or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2011. Awards will be announced in April, 2012.
