John Templeton Grant: Humanities and Social Sciences Funding Areas – Individual Freedom and Free Markets
Religious, political, and economic freedoms are the building blocks of both spiritual and material progress.
Individual and economic freedoms are deeply interconnected; one affects the other and both must be undergirded by genuine virtue and a deep sense of personal responsibility.
Supports education, research, and grassroots efforts to promote individual freedom, free markets, free competition, and entrepreneurship.
Grounded in the ideas of classical liberal political economy, the Foundation seeks and develop projects that focus on individuals and their place in a free society.
Whether by academic research, instruction, public outreach, or supporting debate on public policy, the Foundation aims to contribute toward making the nation and the world more just, more prosperous, and more conducive to human flourishing.
