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.
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.
