Center for Philosophy and Children awarded $250,000 grant from Teagle Foundation for summer program
The UMass Center for Philosophy and Children, directed by Julia Jorati and Ned Markosian, has received a $250,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation’s Knowledge for Freedom Initiative. The grant will fund Question Everything for the next three years. Question Everything is a three-week, residential, summer philosophy program at UMass for high school students from Springfield and Holyoke that is designed to be a bridge-to-college experience for students in demographic groups that are underrepresented in academia. The program also has a component during the academic year that will help participants navigate the college application process, and is tied in with the Center’s Philosophy in Public Schools program.
