Postgrad Conference Funding

The Royal Institute of Philosophy offers sponsorship of up to £5,000 for postgraduate conferences hosted by university departments of philosophy.  Prospective postgraduate organisers are now invited to submit proposals for conferences in 2019 and 2020.


Proposals should include some consideration of the approach taken to the topic and a list of potential speakers, including those who have agreed in principle to take part, as well as some idea of the subject or title of their lecture.  Provisional costs should also be included. The Institute has a preference for approaches that are rigorous but avoid needless technicality. We would expect some endorsement and oversight from at least one member of the relevant department as well. When making a proposal, please indicate whether it would be for 2019, 2020 or whether either year would be possible. Proposals should be emailed to Dr. James Garvey (see the contacts page) to arrive no later than 16 September.
