Funding Opportunities

Conference Funding

One of the decisions of the AGM this year was to change the values of the major and minor grants available. These are now £2000 and £1000, rather than £1000 and £500 respectively. Applicants must contact the Editor of the BJHP, Prof. Michael Beaney, to discuss possibilities in advance of applying for the major grant. Membership of the BSHP is a requirement for applying. Information on how to join us is available on this page. Full information about the conference funding opportunities is available

Graduate Essay Prize

The BSHP Graduate Student Essay Prize is awarded annually to the writer of an essay that makes a significant contribution to the history of philosophy. This prize will now be annual rather than bienniel. The competition is open to postgraduate students who are in full- or part-time education for at least six months in the year prior to the deadline for submission. The Prize is worth £500. Where the winning entry or entries are deemed of sufficient quality and significance, they may also be published in the British Journal for the History of Philosophy. More information about the graduate essay prize can be found on our website here.
