The Marc Sanders Prize in Metaethics

In keeping with its mission of encouraging and recognizing excellence in philosophy, The Marc Sanders Foundation seeks to highlight the importance of ongoing support for the work of younger scholars. As part of this commitment, the Foundation has dedicated resources to an ongoing essay competition, designed to promote excellent research and writing in metaethics on the part of younger scholars. More information about the Sanders Prize in Metaethics, and the Marc Sanders Foundation, can be found at http://www.marcsandersfoundation.org/sanders-prizes/metaethics/.

The Marc Sanders Prize in Metaethics is an annual essay competition open to scholars who are within fifteen years of receiving a Ph.D. or students who are currently enrolled in a graduate program. Independent scholars may also be eligible, and should direct inquiries to the Editor of Oxford Studies in Metaethics Russ Shafer-Landau, at rssl@unc.edu.  The award for the prizewinning essay is $10,000, and winning essays will be published in Oxford Studies in Metaethics. The recipient of the award will be expected to present his or her paper at the 2nd Annual Chapel Hill Metaethics Workshop, Sept 9-11, 2016. More information about the Workshop can be found at http://metaethicsworkshop.web.unc.edu/.

Submitted essays must present original research in metaethics.  Essays should be between 7,500 and 12,000 words.  Since winning essays will appear in Oxford Studies in Metaethics, submissions must not be under review elsewhere. To be eligible for this year’s prize, submissions must be received, electronically, by March 1, 2016.  Refereeing will be blind; authors should omit remarks and references that might disclose their identities. Receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. The winner will be determined by a committee of members of the Editorial Board of Oxford Studies in Metaethics and will be announced in early June.

All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the Prize Administrator, Russ Shafer-Landau, at rssl@unc.edu.
