Final Call: Philosophy of Character Funding Competition

Posted: 9 de August de 2011 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers

This is a final call for proposals for the “New Frontiers in the Philosophy of Character” funding competition sponsored by The Character Project at Wake Forest University.  The deadline for receiving a Letter of Intent is September 1.

This $300,000 RFP is aimed at work in philosophy on the topic of character, and proposals can request between $40,000 and $100,000 for projects not to exceed one year in duration. We hope to make between 5-6 awards. A residential incentive of $6,000 for one semester or $12,000 for an academic year will be offered to philosophy RFP winners who are willing to move to Wake Forest University during the award period, and this stipend would not count as part of the research funding request. A willingness to move will not be taken into account when evaluating proposals.

Since work here will primarily be theoretical, the funding is aimed at semester or yearlong projects involving a book manuscript or series of substantive articles on character.

This competition is supported by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation.

With Best Wishes,
