$40 Million Commitment to Research on Human Flourishing

October 6, 2020

Templeton World Charity Foundation is investing $40 million in interdisciplinary scientific research through the new Grand Challenges for Human Flourishing.

Just announced in Nature, you are invited to help us identify Grand Challenges for Human Flourishing and scientifically tractable ways to address them. Your ideas will guide the Foundation’s direction in supporting at least $40 million in interdisciplinary research. We are interested in social science research on humanity’s cognitive, affective, social, and spiritual capacities. In addition, we will also focus on the connection between economics and flourishing of individuals and communities.

Any qualified respondent with substantial research experience, and employed full-time at a research institution, may submit an idea through our portal. Learn more about the program and sign up for the upcoming informational webinars on our website.
