Character Virtue Development Strategic Plan

The Character Virtue Development department at the John Templeton Foundation funds research that seeks to advance the science and practice of good character.

To focus our efforts and increase the positive impact of our grant-supported projects, we will devote $50 million in funding between 2020 and 2024 to the following four goals:

1. Strengthen character development programs through communities of practice

2. Interested communities gain better access to the latest science of character

3. Catalyze research on character development and social norms

4. Increase the number of early career scientists who study character development


If you’re interested in funding opportunities within the Character Virtue Development Funding Area, we encourage you to review our full strategic plan for 2020-2024.
