The American Philosophical Association (APA) is currently accepting submissions for the inaugural Alvin Plantinga Prize.

Submission deadline: March 30, 2021.

From the blog of the APA:

The APA’s newest prize was established in honor of Alvin Plantinga, John A. O’Brien Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and a past president of the APA Central Division. The Alvin Plantinga Prize is funded through the generosity of the Bossenbroek Family Foundation. The prize will recognize original essays that engage philosophical issues about or in substantial ways related to theism. One prize of $10,000 and up to two honorable mention prizes of $5,000 each will be awarded annually. Submissions must be in English, within the range of 6,000–10,000 words. Submissions will be assessed according to canons of excellence for which Alvin Plantinga is eminent: clarity, rigor, and originality.

Any APA member may submit an essay. To submit an essay by March 30, fill out the submission form.
