Application Deadline: June 1, 2020

The purpose of this Litwin Books Award is to encourage and support scholarship in the philosophy of information. The award shall consist of $1,000, given annually to a graduate student who is working on a dissertation on the philosophy of information (broadly construed). The range of philosophical questions relating to information is broad, and approachable through a variety of philosophical traditions (philosophy of mind, logic, philosophy of information so-called, philosophy of science, etc.).


  • Be an active doctoral student whose primary area of research is directly philosophical, whether the institutional setting is philosophy or another discipline; that is to say, the mode of dissertation research must be philosophical as opposed to empirical or literary study;
  • Have completed all course work; and
  • Have had a dissertation proposal accepted by the institution.

Recipients may receive the award not more than once.
