Graduate Student Funding

There are a limited number of graduate student travel stipends available. Priority will be given to graduates who are presenting their work for the first time at an SIAP event, although all attendees who request funding assistance will be considered. These grants cover the full cost of housing and registration. Students should indicate their desire to apply in their submission email. See the CFP. These grants are funded by the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy.
