Application deadline: March 1, 2014
The Atlas Society (TAS) plans to provide one or more scholarships for graduate students for the 2014-2015 academic year. TAS will offer up to a maximum of $11,000 annually in living expenses and tuition and fees.[Note: there is no formal application process for the 2015-2016 academic year.]
Our graduate scholarships support qualified students pursuing advanced degrees in philosophy and closely related fields, including history, political theory, psychology, and cognitive science. The goal of this program is to aid students with long-term scholarly interests in Ayn Rand
to complete their degree programs and begin taking part in teaching, researching, and writing on a professional basis.
Candidates will need to submit an application specifying their financial needs, career goals, academic record, and degree of familiarity with Ayn Rand
. The detailed application requirements are listed on the application form below.
Scholarship applicants are expected to use the scholarship funds to enhance their ability to focus on their research or studies. In addition, they are required to take part in some TAS training activities. The Atlas Society wishes to support scholarship on topics that are germane to Objectivism
, but does not insist that the study or research programs it supports directly promote Ayn Rand
or her specific arguments.
Application forms are available online or through contacting TAS. The application deadline for scholarships covering the academic year starting in Fall of 2014 is March 1, 2014 and initial awards will be announced by April 3, 2014.
