The Center for Education and Ethics announces a new grant program. The Center will make awards of up to $40,000 for research projects in philosophy as it relates to educational policy and practice. We encourage applicants to understand educational policy and practice in broad terms, including issues that directly relate to K-12 schools and higher education institutions, but also concerning policies that influence children’s growth and development in the family and other institutions. We also encourage diverse kinds of philosophical research ranging from the highly abstract to the highly applied. Proposals might concern any of the following topics:
We emphasize that this list is illustrative and not exhaustive.
To apply, applicants will need to complete a short online form and upload a proposal narrative, budget, and CV. Please check back in September for more information about uploading your documents.
Proposals narratives of no more than 1800 words (not including references or appendices) should attend to the following:
A Curriculum Vita should be uploaded with your materials. If there are co-PIs on the project, each person will need to provide a CV.
Budgets may include funding for a variety of activities that would support the project. These might include: research assistants, workshops and conferences with other scholars, travel to meetings and conferences, summer salary, or course releases. In addition to an itemized budget detailing funding plans of no more than 24 months, please include a paragraph explaining any expenses that might appear unusual or in need of justification. Budgets will be evaluated as part of the review process and may not exceed $40,000. The Center for Ethics and Education has a policy not to pay indirect costs for these grants. Budgets must be signed by an authorizing agent at your institution.
Please note: Requests for projects that are primarily focused on conducting original empirical work or projects seeking to support educational programs are outside of our funding priorities.
There will be one grant review period for the 2016-2017 academic year. We anticipate funding 4 grants.
Next deadline: November 7, 2017.
