O.K. Bouwsma Award

An annual prize is awarded to the Calvin student who submits the best paper in philosophy.

This prize is in honor of Oets Bouwsma, former professor of philosophy at the Universities of Nebraska and Texas, a past president of the American Philosophical Association, and a distinguished alumnus of Calvin University.

The paper should be prepared for blind review: Use a detachable title page with the author’s name on it but do not identify the author in the body of the paper. Papers may be prior submissions for courses, reworkings of such papers, or specifically written for the competition. Brief papers are acceptable. Only one paper per student. Only undergraduate submissions allowed.

The winning paper will be chosen by a panel of members from the philosophy department faculty. The department reserves the right to make no award if the submissions are not of sufficiently quality.

  • Award amount: $500
  • Deadline: April 16, 2021

Direct submissions to:

Philosophy Department
(340 Hiemenga Hall)
