Kantor Fellowship Deadline Looms

J. R. Kantor lecturingThe J.R. Kantor fellowship is intended to assist in research at the Archives of the History of American Psychology (AHAP) at the University of Akron in Ohio. It provides $1000 to help defray travel and accommodation costs. Here is what the AHAP website says about the award:

Kantor Fellowship Application: Download the J.R. Kantor Research Fellowship application. Deadline to apply is June 15, 2009. Call 330-972-7285 or email for further information. This Fellowship honors the memory of Jacob Robert Kantor (1888-1984) and his interest in the history of psychology. Professor Kantor sought to organize scientific values into a coherent framework by replacing mentalistic concepts with those derived from naturalistic observations. These priorities suggest that proposals might deal with the history of various versions of behaviorism, as well as with subjects such as instinct, intelligence, language, or memory; but proposals are welcome on any topic relating to the evolution of scientific psychology.

Although it says the deadline is June 15th here, in a recent e-mail to the Cheiron list, AHAP’s director, David Baker, said that the deadline was June 26th. I am currently seeking to confirm that date.

UPDATE: Yes, David Baker confirms that the deadline has been extended to June 26.
