Academic Affiliates

Why Become an Affiliate?

Nationwide, scant funding exists to specifically support philosophy programs, and, in particular, those programs that bring philosophy outside of colleges and universities to non-traditional settings, including schools, senior centers, libraries, museums, prisons, refugee centers, and public lecture halls. One hundred percent of PLATO Academic Affiliate fees support philosophy programs of all kinds across the United States. All affiliates receive an annual detailed list of all project proposals submitted for PLATO funding, along with information about funded applications, which can serve to inspire new ideas for potential projects.
