Yahoo! We just received word that we’ve been awarded a $1,000 grant for our Philosophy in the Community Program(s) from the American Philosophical Association and the Berry Fund for Public Philosophy.
About the American Philosophical Association
The American Philosophical Association was “founded in 1900 to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers, and to represent philosophy as a discipline.” Their mission concerns promoting “the discipline and profession of philosophy, both within the academy and in the public arena” and their principal activities include: scholarship, teaching, career development, and advocacy.
Thank you so much to the American Philosophical Association and the Berry Fund for Public Philosophy for your support of our organization and awarding us $1,000 for our 2019 Philosophy in the Community Program(s). Your grant will help us support philosophy in the Helena & surrounding areas and be used specifically for our philosophy workshops, philosophy walks, and curriculum development for our “Big Ideas by Little Philosopher’s” program.
