AAP Conference - Undergraduate Bursaries

This year's conference of the Australasian Association of Philosophy will
be hosted by the University of Adelaide, 2-6 July 2017. This is an event at
which around 200 philosophers from interstate and overseas gather to
present papers on topics in all areas of philosophy and exchange ideas. The
AAP has a category of undergraduate membership and this year's conference
will include an undergraduate afternoon on Wednesday 5 July, featuring
talks directed to an undergraduate audience, followed by a social night.
There will also be 80 other papers throughout the conference that have been
nominated as accessible to undergraduate philosophers.

The Faculty of Arts of the University of Adelaide is funding up to 10
bursaries of $300 each to assist with the travel and accommodation expenses
of undergraduate students who are interested in postgraduate study in
Philosophy and would like to attend the conference but are unable to secure
financial assistance to do so from their own university. Conference
registration fees for bursary holders will also be waived. Applications for
these bursaries are now open, and will close on Thursday 22 June.
Applications should be sent by email to Dr Jon Opie at
jon.opie at adelaide.edu.au<mailto:jon.opie at adelaide.edu.au>, containing the
following information:

1.      Your name, contact details and current enrolment status.

2.      A description of your interests in Philosophy.

3.      Details of your interest in postgrad study and research project

4.      Information about your academic performance to date.

5.      An e-letter of support from a member of academic staff in your home
Philosophy department, including a declaration that funds for undergraduate
conference travel are not available from your university (or that you have
unsuccessfully applied for them).

Successful applicants will be notified shortly after the closing date.
