Critical Thinking Fellowship

The Faster Forward Critical Thinking Fellowship Project is a twin of Faster Forward Fellowship, but open to all.  However topics will focus on the furtherance of critical thinking as a discipline, rather than evaluation. The detailed administration of this is currently being negotiated with the national critical thinking association (AILACT-Association for Informal Logic and Critical Thinking).


Applicants for the Faster Forward Critical Thinking Fellowship will work through three stages:

  1. Submitting an Expression of Interest, a one-page abstract of their proposed essay idea. All applicants will receive written feedback on their abstract.
  2. Presenting ideas, to a representative, or team of representatives from 3F. Presentations will take place, online, with all applicants receiving verbal feedback at the end of the presentation.
  3. Finally, applicants will submit an essay of between 2,000 and 5,000 words based on the evolution of their ideas through this process.


  1. Expression of Interest is DUE APRIL 20th, 2019
  2. Presentations are DUE APRIL 30th, 2019
  3. Final Applications are DUE JUNE 30th, 2019
