A New Science of Virtues Grant Competition

The Arete Initiative at the University of Chicago is pleased to announce a new $3 million research program on a New Science of Virtues. This is a multidisciplinary research initiative that seeks contributions from individuals and from teams of investigators working within the humanities and the sciences. We support highly original, scholarly projects that demonstrate promise of a distinctive contribution to virtue research and have the potential to begin a new field of interdisciplinary study.

In 2010, about twenty (20), two-year research grants will be awarded ranging from $50,000 to $300,000. Scholars and scientists from around the world are invited to submit Letters of Intent (LOI) as entry into a research grant competition.

Application deadline: March 2, 2009. 5:00pm CST.

For a description of the required Letter of Intent and more information about a New Science of Virtues, go to: www.scienceofvirtues.org/arete/researchgrants.aspx or contact us directly at virtues@uchicago.edu.
