Summer Institute 2024: May 13-17, Toronto

The Canadian Philosophical Association, together with the Departments of Philosophy at York University, Toronto Metropolitan University, and the University of Toronto, is pleased to announce the third edition of the Summer Institute. A one-week enrichment program for philosophy undergraduates from across Canada, the Summer Institute will give students from underrepresented groups an intensive immersion in academic philosophy. This program is open to students at Canadian Universities who are members of groups underrepresented among Canadian Philosophy faculty, including First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Black and racialized persons, women, persons with disabilities, and first generation university and college students.

Participants will meet in Toronto for a week of philosophical activity, including seminars and guest lectures on a variety of topics, and peer discussion groups on areas of shared philosophical interest. Special guests include Yann Allard-Tremblay and Meena Krishnamurthy

The 2024 program will run from May 13-17, 2024 in Toronto. All successful applicants will be fully funded, including round-trip travel from anywhere in Canada, local transport, accommodation, meals, and a $400 stipend.

Deadline for applications is February 29, 2024. Click here to apply online. 

Applicants will need to answer some questions about their interests in philosophy and in the CPA Summer institute, and supply the name and university email address of a faculty member who has recently taught them in a philosophy course. We’ll be in touch with that person to ask them for a short letter of recommendation.
