Give to Philosophy

A contribution to the Department of Philosophy is a powerful way to make an impact on our students' lives. Contributions are used primarily to support Graduate Student Travel as well as our Annual Graduate and Postgraduate Conference. Some funds many also be used for visiting speakers and special undergraduate events. If you would like your donation to be directed toward another area, please indicate it on the form.

The scholarship is awarded each year in her honor to a student with superior academic achievement who demonstrates a special interest in the history of philosophy.
