The Society offers limited financial support for individual projects by academic staff, researchers, and postgraduates working in applied philosophy. This might include, for instance, limited teaching relief, travel, or other relevant activity. It may thus facilitate the completion of work that would otherwise remain unsupported. Individuals are welcome to contact an Officer of the Society for further advice and information.
The amounts available are not large — we do not envisage making individual grants of more than £1,200. Normally only one application per person per year will be considered. The Society will take into account any previous successful applications when making a decision to fund.
Applications can be made at any time of the year and should state the nature of the support requested and why it is necessary for the pursuit of the work. Like all our other funding, applications may only be made by members of the Society.
Please note that support for completion of a degree cannot be considered under further funding. Postgraduate students seeking funding for such purposes should apply for the Society’s Doctoral Scholarship award.
COVID-19 pandemic: Given the ongoing uncertainty arising from Covid-19, the Society will currently support only costs that are not penalised by Covid-related cancellations. Budgets should be submitted with this prospect in mind, and applicants should confirm that all proposed bookings can be cancelled or amended without penalty. The Society will not reimburse expenses where an activity cannot take place because of Covid-19.
