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 2018 to fund projects aiming to increase the presence and participation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, people of low socioeconomic status, and other underrepresented groups in philosophy.

As the APA operates primarily in the US and Canada, programs must have a clear application to diversity in a US/Canada context. 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.

The APA normally funds projects for only one year at a time, but welcomes applications for renewal funding in subsequent years.

The board of officers will review proposals and make funding decisions in November 2017, so proposed projects should commence no earlier than January 1, 2018. Funding will be disbursed in the first half of calendar year 2018.

All APA members are invited to submit proposals. The deadline to submit a proposal is June 30, 2017.

Please note that a project submitted for diversity and inclusiveness funding through this RFP may not also be submitted for small grant funding.

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