AAP Postgraduate Conference Fund

Applications for 2018-19 will open in September.

The AAP Postgraduate Conference Fund is created to support conferences, workshops, seminars, and other similar events on philosophical topics that are organised by postgraduate members of the Association.  Such events can be directed at an audience of philosophers or at a wider public. 

Applicants must submit a proposal to the Association which includes a description of the proposed conference, a draft budget, Department declaration of support and nomination by a Faculty sponsor. In addition, Faculty sponsors should provide a brief confidential evaluation of the proposed conference. A Faculty sponsor will often be the applicant’s supervisor, but need not be.

Applications will be evaluated and ranked by an Evaluation Panel on their philosophical merits, and funding from the Fund will be distributed in line with these rankings. The total fund in 2018 is AUD4000 - no successful proposal will be allocated more than 50% of the Fund. 

An announcement of successful applications will be made towards the end of the year in 2018. Any funded conference or event should occur within 12 months of the Panel's decision. Applicants whose proposals are successful will need to agree to any conditions the Association places on funding, and will also need to submit a brief report on the conference at the conclusion of their event.


Any applicant to the fund must be a research postgraduate (Postgraduate or Masters by Research) and an ordinary member of the Association in good standing.


Applications for 2018-19 will open in September. 

Deadline for Applications: Tuesday 16th October 2018
