The seventh annual meeting of Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer
Institute (PIKSI) will take place from June 14June 21, on the campus of
the Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA. At least* two
graduate students* will assist Ellen Feder, who will direct the Institute
this year. In addition, one graduate assistant will come from the Penn
State philosophy department. *We expect that, as was the case in previous
summers, the home institution of the other graduate assistants will fund
their positions.* (The philosophy departments of the University of Memphis,
Binghamton University, Villanova University, Michigan State University,
University of Colorado at Boulder, Stony Brook University, University of
Washington, Dalhousie, American University, DePaul University, University
of Oregon, and the University of Alberta, generously supported PIKSI
graduate assistants in 2006-2013.)

We invite those of you teaching in graduate programs to nominate graduate
student assistants for PIKSI. The applications will be screened according
to the graduate student’s accomplishments as a researcher, a teacher, and
mentor; the relevance of her or his research to the topics of the
institute; and the home institution’s willingness to fund the student
(approximately $2000, including travel, housing, and stipend).

Applications should include:

�          a cover letter from the graduate student which discusses why he
or she would like to be a GA for PIKSI

�          the graduate student’s CV

�          a letter of support from a faculty member

�          documentation of institutional support, if available
