UPSS Delegate Program

Underrepresented Philosophy of Science Scholars

UPSS Delegate Program

The UPSS Delegate Program provides travel assistance to attend the PSA Biennial Meeting for early career scholars (advanced undergraduates, recent graduates, or beginning graduate students) who are considering pursuing philosophy of science. UPSS Delegates are paired with a senior graduate student "PSA Host" for the meetings, who will help show them around the meeting and introduce them to people in the field.

UPSS Hosts will typically be advanced graduate students in the philosophy of science who are already planning to attend the biennial meeting. They will be paired with an UPSS Delegate for the duration of the meeting and be responsible for helping to show the UPSS Delegate around the meeting and introduce them to other graduate students and faculty in the field.

The application deadline for the UPSS delegate program is August 15th, 2022.
