The Richard H. Severens Scholarship is an annual award intended for graduating Honors philosophy majors. The scholarship amount will be in the range of $1000–$2000, depending on the availability of the funds and the number of scholarships awarded.
All UGA Honors philosophy majors who are enrolled for Spring 2021, and are expected to graduate in Spring 2021, Summer 2021, or Fall 2021 are eligible for the scholarship. The scholarship recipient must be in good standing with the Honors Program at the time of application.
Applicants should submit the following information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 pm, Monday, April 12, 2021:
- 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.
Scholarship recipients shall be selected by the Philosophy Department Awards Committee.
