Give to MCPS
What We Do
The Minnesota Center for the Philosophy of Science (MCPS) is committed to
advancing research and graduate training in the philosophy of science.
Scholars of different disciplines throughout the University of Minnesota
and the greater Twin Cities area conduct innovative research to advance
knowledge and provide outstanding educational opportunities for students.
We also bring together faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate student
researchers from around the world through our visiting fellows program,
organize conferences, and conduct collaborative research workshops.
What Your Gift Can Do
Your generous support for MCPS is more critical than ever. We have a
variety of funding opportunities at different levels. They range from
modest contributions toward ongoing activities (or endowments) to larger
contributions that establish named graduate student fellowships, lecture
series, postdoctoral fellowships, or faculty chairs.
Our giving priorities include the following:
We sponsor one of the most important colloquia in philosophy of science in the world. Eminent philosophers and scientists, as well as
emerging scholars, come to Minnesota from around the globe. In addition to
presenting their research, visiting speakers typically participate in
our interest groups, attend seminars, and meet with residential, visiting,
and graduate student fellows associated with MCPS.
- Excellence and competitiveness of our visiting fellows program
Gifts toward visiting fellowships help us recruit the very best faculty,
postdoctoral, and graduate student visiting fellows and enrich their
experience by making it possible for them to conduct research with us. We
are especially interested in growing a regular community of postdoctoral
fellows over the next few years.
