The American Philosophical Association (APA) has won a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The grant will provide $600,000 over three years to support undergraduate diversity institutes in philosophy, including the expansion of the Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institute (PIKSI) program and the development of infrastructure to support it and other undergraduate diversity institutes…
Through this grant, the APA will provide funding to increase the length and number of participants in the PIKSI program at Pennsylvania State University’s Rock Ethics Institute, now in its tenth year, and to found a second PIKSI program based in Boston, which will also be supported by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Massachusetts Boston.
In addition, the grant will allow the APA to provide infrastructure to support these and other undergraduate diversity institutes through networking and professional development opportunities, outreach and advertising, and data gathering efforts.
