The 13th Annual Dr. Brian M. Keenan Prize

$1500.00 Scholarship Opportunity for Undergraduate Philosophy Students to encourage and support philosophical education

The Dr. Brian M. Keenan Prize is a national scholarship founded to, first, honour Dr. Brian Keenan’s life-long commitment to philosophical education and to, second, motivate and support post-secondary philosophic inquiry. Brian Keenan served as a professor of Philosophy at the University of Winnipeg for 37 years, from 1972 – 2009. In his time there he inspired countless students to engage critically with the world around them and to see the outworking of philosophical theories in practical life. The award committee is excited to be celebrating the twelfth year of the prize and are hoping for another year of insightful submissions. The scholarship consists of a onetime cash prize of $1500.00 awarded to an undergraduate student attending a Canadian university or college.

This past year, the Keenan Prize shortlist continued to include applicants from across the country and the 2021 prize was awarded to Nicholas Duguay for his paper "The Problem of Stability: A Case for Civic Friendship in the Rawlsian Society". Please see the Dr. Brian M. Keenan Prize website to read Nicholas' paper and take a look at the 2021 shortlist. The prize will be awarded again this year to a candidate who submits a paper in the area of Philosophy of History, Law, or Social and Political Philosophy.

Deadline for submission is May 31, 2022 and the prize winner will be announced on October 1, 2022.
