The Kierkegaard House Foundation is in the process of revising somewhat the deadlines and guidelines for fellowship applications.We apologize that this year there was some conflicting statements about this on the website.In an effort to be as fair as we can under the circumstances, we will have two rounds of consideration for the two fellowships for 2015-16.The first round will choose a winner from the applications received by November 7.Any applications not chosen in this round will be automatically considered (with an invitation for updating) in the second round, which will choose a winner from all applications received by February 1. We again apologize for the confusion. Edward Langerak, President of the Kierkegaard House Foundation
