American Philosophical Society’s grant and fellowship programs updated

The American Philosophical Society has revised the Grants section on www.amphilsoc.org, for 2020–2021. We will announce any changes to programs at our website, so we invite you to check the Grants section periodically.

Our grants are not restricted to philosophy, please check the section “About the APS.”

Thank you very much for your help in spreading word of our programs. I am very happy to answer any questions that you may have on any of our programs.

Purpose, scope
Awards are made for noncommercial research only. The Society makes no grants for academic study or classroom presentation, for travel to conferences, for non-scholarly projects, for assistance with translation, or for the preparation of materials for use by students. The Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any institution or costs of publication.

Applicants may be citizens or residents of the United States or American citizens resident abroad. Foreign nationals whose research can only be carried out in the United States are eligible, although applicants to the Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research in Astrobiology must be U.S. citizens, U.S. residents, or foreign nationals formally affiliated with a U.S. institution. Grants are made to individuals; institutions are not eligible to apply. Requirements for each program vary.

Tax information
Grants and fellowships are taxable income, but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended that grant and fellowship recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax advisors. Grant funds are not to be used to pay income taxes on the award.
