The Philosophy Department will choose the AY 2018–2019 recipient of the Richard H. Severens Scholarship, in the amount of $500.

All UGA Honors philosophy majors enrolled for Fall Semester 2018 who are expected to graduate during Spring 2019, Summer 2019, or Fall 2019 are eligible for the scholarship. The scholarship recipient must hold a GPA of at least 3.15 during the scholarship period and must be enrolled during that period (Spring 2019). Interested eligible students should submit appropriate materials in support of candidacy to the Department of Philosophy by 5:00 pm, Monday, April 8, 2019, Attn: Thanassis Samaras. 

These materials include:

  • A current curriculum vitae (resumé)
  • A writing sample, such as an essay you have written for a philosophy course, or a description of what you plan to do in your philosophy honors thesis if you are currently enrolled in PHIL 4990H (Honors Thesis). If your philosophy honors thesis is already complete or in draft, then you may use all or part of it as your writing sample. Honors thesis plans will be a criterion in awarding the scholarship.
