The Archives of the History of American Psychology is pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2005 Kantor Fellowship.

Kantor Fellowship

Fellows are expected to utilize the resources of the Archives of the History of American Psychology in support of a program of research and scholarship in the history of psychology. Preference will be given to applicants who have received the doctoral degree within the last five years. The award is intended to assist with travel and living expenses, up to $1,000.00, while pursuing these primary sources. (If no award is considered to merit funding in any one year, the stipend could be added to the next offering.)

This Fellowship honors the memory of Jacob Robert Kantor (1888-1984) and his interest in the history of psychology. Over the course of a long and productive career at Indiana University, Professor Kantor sought to organize scientific values into a coherent framework by replacing mentalistic concepts with those derived from naturalistic observations. These priorities suggest that proposals might deal with the history of various versions of behaviorism, as well as with subjects such as instinct, intelligence, language, or memory; but proposals are welcome on any topic relating to the evolution of scientific psychology.

Applicants should provide five copies of the completed application form. Applications are available online at or by contacting the AHAP ([email protected]). The Committee will employ blind review. The deadline for receipt of proposals is April 30, 2005. Selection of the recipient will be announced by July 1, 2005. Funds must be used by June 30, 2006.
