The American Philosophical Association recently announced the establishment of the Israel Scheffler Prize in Philosophy of Education, in memory of Harvard University Professor of Philosophy Israel Scheffler. The prize will be awarded every third year for a book or a connected set of three or more papers, the most recent of which was published no more than five years previous, on a topic in philosophy of education, broadly construed.

The winner of the prize will receive a $1,000 award. If the selected book or connected work is co-authored, the authors will share equally in the $1,000 award.

Details on eligibility and nominations can be found at the American Philosophical Association website.
