SCHOLARSHIPS

The Summer Immersion Program (SIPP) at Brown University is now accepting applications for their summer program!  
SIPP@Brown is a two-week residential program for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy and who are members of groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in the field. This year’s program will be held July 6 – 17. The deadline to apply is March 1st.
 
During the program, participants will attend two daily seminars. They will also participate in regular social and educational activities arranged by the Brown Department of Philosophy and in the SIPP@Brown Conference. Participants can expect to leave the program with a better understanding of what graduate school in philosophy is like and how to prepare applications for both MA and PhD programs.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Stance: An International Undergraduate Philosophy Journal is produced and edited entirely by undergraduate students. We aim to enrich student learning by providing an opportunity for undergraduate students to have their original scholarly work reviewed by or published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.

Episteme is a student-run journal that aims to recognize and encourage excellence in undergraduate philosophy by providing examples of some of the best work currently being done in undergraduate philosophy programs. Episteme is published under the auspices of Denison University’s Department of Philosophy. We publish a journal in print each Spring. We are proud to announce the twenty-seventh volume of Episteme, which you can download from Episteme’s website. Specially requested print editions have been shipped. This year’s submissions spanned a diverse body of philosophical literature from philosophy of feminism to Kripke’s philosophy of language, and they included authors as far-flung from as the Kyoto University. We hope that an even broader host of students are encouraged to participate in the next volume.

Discussions is an undergraduate run, peer-reviewed research journal that publishes undergraduate research in all fields of study. Discussions publishes several times every year.

Lex Modestum is a student run undergraduate philosophy journal dedicated to providing opportunities to aspiring philosophers. We accept original philosophical works from undergraduate students in both Analytic and Continental strains of thought. Along with the traditional essay format, we are also interested in presenting unique philosophical ideas via original modes of presentation (e.g. dialogues, poems, artwork, and short stories).
