Grant Opportunities at the Character Project

Professor Christian Miller [1] (Wake Forest) and his colleagues have recently been awarded a $3.67 million grant from the John Templeton Foundation for The Character Project [2], an exploration of the nature of character.

Christian asked me to let you know that $2 million will soon be devoted to three separate funding competitions [3], one of which will be for philosophers working on topics related to character broadly conceived, including but not limited to the recent work on the empirical adequacy of character traits.

You can learn more about the project here [2] and the funding competitions here [3]. Do feel free to contact Christian at character (at) wfu.edu for more information.

The project sounds really interesting and many congratulations to Christian on securing this funding!
