Money for Philosophers

I’ve been asked whether there is a good online resource listing grants and fellowships for which philosophers would be eligible. It turns out there is.

Take a look at the “Non-APA Prizes, Grants, and Fellowships” page at the American Philosophical Association’s website. There’s a good number of programs listed there. If you know of one that isn’t on the list, please mention it in the comments here. Of course, the APA has a page listing its own awards and fellowships, too.

This is indeed very helpful! However, I wonder if there’s anything organized by deadline? What about by region/country? Something like a Google Calendar of available fellowships/grants/etc. would be really cool. Of course, someone would have to take the time to create and maintain this… #notit

Or maybe it already exists, and I’m just not aware of it?

This is a nice resource, but it can also be overwhelming and lead to a great deal of frustration. What would be far more useful is a page where actual grant recipients post about their experience working with foundations or other granting agencies, information about what they received their grant for, and some details about the process (e.g., time between application and award). Grant recipients can also put people in touch with foundation staff members who may be able to assist in the process.
