In keeping with its mission of encouraging and recognizing excellence in philosophy, the Marc Sanders Foundation is pleased to announce a new prize for graduate students. The Foundation has dedicated resources to an ongoing essay competition, designed to promote excellent research and writing in philosophy on the part of younger scholars. The Foundation is in discussions with the Eastern Division of the APA to establish three annual APA graduate student prizes for the best papers in mind, metaphysics, epistemology or ethics. Prize winners will receive a monetary award of $1000 and winning papers will be presented at the Eastern Division of the APA.
Applications for these prizes are to be submitted to the Eastern Division Program Committee of the APA. Details can be found here.
