The Journal of the History of Philosophy is pleased to announce the Jan Wojcik Memorial Prize for graduate students in the history of philosophy. Made possible by the generosity of Jan’s children and their families, this annual $4000 award is intended to further the research of a graduate student enrolled and resident in a North American Ph.D. program and working on a dissertation in the history of philosophy (all periods). The prize will be given to fund either

(a) Travel to archives or libraries outside of North America to pursue research for a dissertation in the History of Philosophy


(b) Travel to present a paper in the history of philosophy accepted at a conference or seminar outside of North America.

An application should include a one-page description of the applicant’s dissertation topic and two letters of support. In the case of (a) (travel abroad for research purposes), the application should also include a description (not to exceed two pages) indicating what research the applicant will be carrying out abroad and how travel will further that work. In the case of (b) (travel abroad to present at a conference or seminar), the application should include a summary of the paper to be presented and a copy of the notice indicating that the paper has been accepted.

In either case, the prize is awarded for travel in the calendar year following the year of the deadline for applications. The winner will be announced in the first issue of the JHP for that year. The successful candidate is expected to submit a brief report (maximum one page) to the chair of the Wojcik prize panel, Professor Sarah Hutton.

Electronic applications only. All materials should be sent to Professor Sarah Hutton (shutton@cantab.net).
