Philosophy MA Scholarship

Georgia State University’s highly ranked terminal MA program in Philosophy offers a graduate “Scholarship in Liberalism.”  This is a competitively awarded scholarship for an outstanding student with a demonstrated interest in the arguments of historical or contemporary philosophical liberals (in the tradition of figures such as Locke, Smith, Hume, and Mill) about issues such as freedom, justice, political authority, social order, toleration and related themes.  The 2017-2018 academic year will be the third year we offer this scholarship; it provides a $15,000 stipend for each year in the two-year program plus a full tuition waiver (the second year, of course, is contingent on satisfactory performance the first year).  Our Department has several funding packages available.) Some further details about funding are located here.  See our excellent faculty here.  Our Department has long had a strength in Social and Political Philosophy and Philosophy of Law and we place many of our graduates into excellent PhD programs.  Take a look at the rest of the Department’s website! and also that of our Ethics Center!

I would love some applications from some BHLs!

    Giving out monies derived from coercive taxation to study freedom, justice and political authority. Irony much?

      Actually, the funds are from a private donor. (Though the tuition waiver is not.) That said, I don’t mind taking money from an bloated source in order to help argue that the source should be dramatically reduced.

  • The Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship seeks to help students who have fought through adversity in their lives in order to better themselves through education. Understanding that, for many possible reasons, not everyone has been a straight A student with perfect test scores, we seek to help those who have had difficulty in school and fought through it—whether it be the result of a difficult home life, socio-economic disadvantages, learning disabilities, ethnic/racial/gender or other biases, just plain stubborn orneriness and misbehavior early in life, or any other reason.

    Whatever issues you have overcome in the past (and might be continuing to overcome at the present), those issues do not determine your future. We at the Keith Williams Law Group are living proof of that, and the Keith Williams Law Group Semi-Annual Scholarship therefore seeks to help you as you work to overcome whatever issues you might have faced and to create a bright, successful future for yourself through education.
