Philosothon Project Application form for 2020 Funding The creation of ‘Age Appropriate Resources’.
This subsidy will be available for individuals who we approach on behalf of the project to contribute a short 2/3 page written piece of stimulus material to be used in an upcoming Philosothon. Please note that this will relate primarily to Secondary School Philosothons (Years 8-12) and should be tailored to this audience. Year 8 (13yrs old) - Year 12 (18 yrs old)
Over the course of the project this funding will total $4,500.00. ($300 per written piece) Successful applicants will be paid an honorarium for stimulus material which deals with big philosophical questions. Please note that there are some areas that the funding cannot cover. Click here for a list of exemptions. People can contribute material in any case but if they want it to be eligible for a honorarium they must make sure the contribution does not cover the areas listed. There is a max of three grants per annum for a single contributor. Please note that other formats will be considered e.g audio/video but ideally it will be a written piece submitted.
The panel will consider the following criteria to select the awardees.
1. Age appropriate 2. Originality and relevance 3. Balance of topics i.e we seek to cover a range of philosophical areas in a Philosothon (Metaphysics/Epistemology & Axiology) Please do not try to cover all three but make sure your stimulus material fits within one area.
