Dissertation Grants

The Foundation is accepting research grant proposals from current doctoral students writing dissertations that investigate free societies and the ideas, values, and institutions that maximize well-being. Proposals will be considered for dissertations across a variety of disciplines that examine foundational, system-level, and applied research questions.

Accepted dissertation proposals may be awarded up to $5,000 in grant funding with the possibility of renewal as well as additional resources to expand doctoral candidates’ educational opportunities and career development.

Notification Process:

All prospective grantees will be notified of the outcome of the grant evaluation process. The Foundation’s goal with every proposal is to arrive at, and to communicate, decisions in a timely manner so that prospective grantees know where they stand. Please allow up to three months for the review of submitted materials and a response from the Foundation.
