The American Philosophical Association, in keeping with its mission and goals and the association’s longstanding commitment to addressing philosophy’s serious lack of demographic diversity, will make available up to $20,000 in fiscal year 2016 to fund projects aiming to increase the presence and participation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBT people, people with disabilities, people of low socioeconomic status, and other underrepresented groups in philosophy.

The board wishes to express its particular interest in supporting programs that explicitly address more than one type of diversity (e.g., gender and race/ethnicity).

Proposals totaling approximately $10,000 or $20,000 are strongly preferred, as the board of the association anticipates funding either one $20,000 project or two $10,000 projects. Proposals for $20,000 projects are encouraged to include an alternate project description and budget at the $10,000 level.

Proposals for both one-time and multi-year grants will be accepted, though one-year proposals are preferred. No proposal will be funded for longer than three years at a time.

Because the board of officers will make funding decisions in November 2015, we recommend proposed projects commence no earlier than January 1, 2016. Funding will be disbursed in the first half of calendar year 2016.

All APA members are invited to submit proposals. The deadline to submit a proposal is June 30, 2015. Please note that projects submitting proposals for diversity and inclusiveness funding through this RFP may not also submit proposals for small grant funding.

For more information, including details on how to submit a proposal, see the full RFP on the APA website.
