Reminder: GSU Philosophy MA Program 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.  Our website has fairly comprehensive information about the program. We also have a flyer available here.  Also see our Ethics Center website!

The most important deadline is February 1, which ensures that students will be considered in the initial round of consideration and must be met for a candidate to be considered for the scholarship (though we also have rolling admissions for applicants between February 1 and our final deadline of April 15).  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me or our Director of Graduate Studies, Tim O’Keefe (
