A New Science of Virtues Grant Competition Finalists Announced
A New Science of Virtues Grant Competition
In what ways might the humanities and the sciences cooperate to develop richer understandings of virtue for modern societies?
In March 2009, almost 700 scholars and scientists from around the world submitted letters of intent as entry into this research grant competition. 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 totaling $3 million will be awarded, ranging from $50,000 to $300,000 each.
The University of Chicago is pleased to announce the forty (40) finalists. They will submit full proposals by October 1, 2009 (5:00pm CST) and go on to compete for one of twenty awards at the New Science of Virtues Symposium (Chicago) in January 2010.
