The Carnegie Mellon Summer School in Logic and Formal Epistemology

The Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University offers a three-week summer school in logic and formal epistemology for promising undergraduates in philosophy, mathematics, computer science, linguistics, and other sciences. The goals are to introduce promising students to cross-disciplinary fields of research at an early stage in their career and forge lasting links between the various disciplines.  The program will pay for tuition and dormitory accommodations on the Carnegie Mellon campus.

Kierkegaard Summer Fellows and Young Scholars Programs

The Kierkegaard Library offers fellowships to scholars for from two to nine weeks in duration, usually used between June 3 and August 15. Fellowships are also available at other times of year. The award includes free housing and a $300 per month stipend for food as well as access to the libraries and other facilities of St. Olaf College. Young Scholars Program stipends are $200 per month.

The young scholars program is designed for college seniors or recently graduated college graduates prior to their graduate school programs. Young scholars should apply as Summer Fellows. If there is a core group among our applications, the curator of the Kierkegaard library will convene the Young Scholars Program which meets daily usually during the month of July. In-depth study of a chosen Kierkegaard text or other topic will be the focus as well as the curator’s mentorship for the scholar’s own research and study.
