Litwin Books Award for Ongoing Doctoral Dissertation Research in the Philosophy of Information

The purpose of this award is to encourage and support scholarship in the philosophy of information. The award shall consist of $1,000, given annually to a graduate student who is working on a dissertation on the philosophy of information (broadly construed). As we see it, the range of philosophical questions relating to information is broad, and approachable through a variety of philosophical traditions (philosophy of mind, logic, philosophy of information so-called, philosophy of science, etc.).

The scholarship recipient must be an active doctoral student whose primary area of research is directly philosophical, whether the institutional setting is philosophy or another discipline; that is to say, the mode of dissertation research must be philosophical as opposed to empirical or literary study. The recipient must have completed all course work and have had a dissertation proposal accepted by the institution. Recipients may receive the award not more than once.

Nominations should be submitted via email by June 1. For more information, see http://litwinbooks.com/award.php
