The Charles Koch Foundation invites research scholars, professors, and policy experts to submit proposals on behalf of their university, college, or other 501(c)(3) organization on the foundations of individual and societal well-being. Well-being is a critical issue with broad implications for how individuals and societies might organize to maximize fulfillment and welfare. With this in mind the Foundation aims to more fully understand the origins and drivers of well-being, at an individual and societal level, to build a body research examining these critical issues, and add to the public discourse.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
The Charles Koch Foundation is interested in all papers and larger projects that help shed light on individual and societal well-being, but is especially interested in papers that address the following:
Understanding well-being’s historical and philosophical foundations.
Identifying and exploring key drivers of individual and societal well-being.
Measuring well-being through science.
Interested authors should submit a one-to-two page abstract of the project on behalf of their university, college, or other 501(c)(3) organization along with a brief CV or résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org. The abstract should provide sufficient detail for reviewers to assess the nature and feasibility of their idea. Submissions should be original, of academic journal quality, and must not have been published previously. Accepted proposals have the opportunity for the following:
Grant funding of up to $5,000 per paper (with a possibility for more for larger projects).
Support for efforts to help promote the final research product.
Proposals will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis. Please allow around four weeks for final notifications.
