GRANTS (PAPER INCUBATOR)
Deadline: January 5, 2024
12 small grants will be offered as part of our paper incubator, which is a systemized and sponsored mentorship program designed to help junior and mid-career philosophers and scholars of Indian studies to develop submitted papers proposals into publishable articles (junior and mid-career scholars are those who are pursuing a PhD or have completed they PhD in the last 6 years). Each selected researcher will work in cooperation with a tutor (a member of our team), who will help the candidate transform their text into a high-quality publishable article. Philosophy researchers will be tutored by an India studies scholar; Indian studies researchers will be tutored by a philosopher. Each successful applicant will receive a grant of $ 3,000. They will have 18 months to write their article, which must be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. By the end of the nineth month there will be a set of virtual meetings with all researchers and tutors where each researcher will present their work. Besides, each researcher must present their work in at least one of our conferences (a bonus of $ 1,000 will be given to those who attend the conference in person). The grant will be awarded through bank transfer, on which bank and federal revenue fees may apply.
Proposals must be written in English in the form of a blinded extended abstract of a maximum of 2,000 words, clearly describing (1) the problem that will be addressed, (2) the context in which the problem has been approached (preferably through a brief literary review), (3) the goal of the paper, (4) the way the proponent wants to achieve this goal, and (5) containing the relevant bibliography. The general intended philosophical approach must be analytical. Proposals must address some of the questions and general goals of the project (for a more detailed account click here). Applicants must be PhD candidates, or have completed their PhD within a maximum of 6 years. We welcome proposals both from philosophers and Indian Studies scholars. The proposal must be sent along with a summarized CV of the applicant to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 5, 2024. The list of selected proposals will be posted here on January 15, 2024.
