Philosophy Dissertation Fellowship

Call for Applications

Type: Philosophy Dissertation Fellowship
Institution: APRA Foundation Berlin
Location: Berlin (Germany)
Date: 2020–2023
Deadline: Ongoing

The purpose of the APRA Foundation Berlin Philosophy Dissertation
Fellowship is to motivate pursuit of a well-rounded education in
philosophy that prepares the applicant to flourish in a variety of
professional environments – whether academic or otherwise – that
demand cross-cultural knowledge, logical reasoning, and recognition
of the extent to which Western culture is rooted in the more ancient
cultures of the Near and Far East. To this end, it requires of the
applicant prior completion of a background program of philosophical
study that extends beyond the scope of most undergraduate and
graduate degree requirements, in its inclusion of required coursework
in logic, Eastern philosophy, and the Arabic and Jewish thinkers in
Medieval philosophy. In this way, the Fellowship Applicant
Credentials establish a foundation for advanced philosophical study
that cultivates both familiarity with philosophical approaches from a
variety of non-Western traditions, and also the shared tools of
consistent reasoning and analysis through which to reintegrate them
into meaningful relation with the Western tradition. This will serve
all Fellowship applicants well whether they actually win the
Fellowship or not.

The successful applicant will receive a grant of € 12,000.00/year,
divided into 12 sequential monthly payments of € 1,000.00 each, for a
period of 36 sequential months, running from September of the first
year through August of the third sequential year.

The Fellowship is portable to any accredited philosophy dissertation
program in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, or North America. It is
the responsibility of the Fellow to gain admission to such a doctoral
program at an accredited institution, to obtain a dissertation
advisor, and to discharge the academic and administrative
requirements described above. The Fellow agrees to teach no more than
one course per semester at the most, in addition to researching and
writing the dissertation, during the Fellowship period.
