The McGill Raymond Klibansky Collection Research Grant

The McGill Raymond Klibansky Collection Research Grant is intended to enable researchers from outside the Montreal area, both established scholars and graduate students, to work on a research project related either to the Klibansky Collection itself or to the history of philosophy in the congenial circumstances of Rare Books and Special Collections, McGill University Library.

The Raymond Klibansky Collection of over 7000 titles reflects the entire range of Klibansky's intellectual interests from his early work on medieval thought to his engagement with the concept of "tolerance" and its importance in the post-Second World War World. Rare Books and Special Collections houses major collections on David Hume and Søren Kierkegaard and has extensive holdings in whole western philosophical tradition through the nineteenth century.

The Klibansky Research Grant, with a value of up to $4000.00 (Cdn), is open on a competitive basis.

Candidates must provide:

  1. A description, 1500 words maximum, of the intended project, and of the portion of it, if it is a large undertaking, which will be the focus of work done during the time spent at McGill.
  2. A current curriculum vitæ giving details of completed and continuing research.
  3. The email addresses of two scholars who have agreed to respond to a request to evaluate the candidate's proposal.
  4. The time when they would intend to take up the Grant.

The recipient of the Grant will be required to submit a written report on their time at McGill that will be published on the Grant's website, and potentially give a talk about their work.  The recipient will also be expected to acknowledge the library's support in future presentations of the work resulting from research undertaken at McGill.

Applications should be sent to: rarebooks.library [at] (subject: McGill%20Raymond%20Klibansky%20Collection%20Research%20Grant)
