The Richard H. Severens Scholarship is an annual award in the amount of $500.

All UGA Honors philosophy majors enrolled for Fall Semester and expected to graduate the following Spring, Summer, or Fall are eligible for the scholarship. The scholarship recipient must hold a GPA of at least 3.15 during the scholarship period and must be enrolled during that period.

Interested eligible students should submit appropriate materials in support of candidacy to the Department of Philosophy by 5:00 pm, Monday, April 8, 2019, Attn: Thanassis Samaras. 

These materials include:

  • A current curriculum vitae (resumé)
  • A writing sample, such as an essay you have written for a philosophy course, or a description of what you plan to do in your philosophy honors thesis if you are currently enrolled in PHIL 4990H (Honors Thesis). If your philosophy honors thesis is already complete or in draft, then you may use all or part of it as your writing sample. Honors thesis plans will be a criterion in awarding the scholarship.
