4 PhD Scholarships in Political Philosophy at UWO, Canada

Thanks to the generosity of the F.M. Barnard Trust, Western University (London, Canada) now offers up to four Barnard Scholarships annually to graduate students in the field of political philosophy.  The Scholarships currently have a value of C$12500, awarded in addition to Western’s standard package of support, and are available to Canadian or international students. They may be held in either the Politics or the Philosophy departments: the two departments have a strong record of collaboration, and students in political philosophy draw on the teaching and supervision of both. For more information, visit either department’s site: www.politicalscience.uwo.ca/graduate, or www.philosophy.uwo.ca/graduate. For enquiries regarding the scholarship: Richard Vernon, ravernon@uwo.ca
