Associate and Fellowship Programs and Awards
From the International Society for Philosophers
Here you will find information about the Associate and Fellowship programs leading to awards from the International Society for Philosophers.
The Pathways and International Society programs seem in many ways ideally suited to one another, with Pathways offering the option of a structured program in philosophy for those who need it, while the Associate and Fellowship offer the freedom to pursue your philosophical inquiries in whichever direction your interests take you. The result is a philosophy distance learning program of great flexibility, that can be as challenging as you choose to make it.
The Associate and Fellowship programs present an ideal opportunity for any aspiring philosopher to hone his or her essay and paper writing skills. Each essay you submit receives detailed and constructive feedback which is appreciate of what you have accomplished, but also pulls no punches in explaining where further improvement is needed in order to achieve the standard required.
These pages are designed to be complementary to Pathways to Philosophy, and together form a miniature introduction to philosophy. Whatever you may decide to do in pursuing your philosophical studies, we hope you find the materials useful, as well as stimulating and enjoyable to read. If you have any further queries, or comments about the materials, please use the Comments Form or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
