The Character Virtue Development funding area seeks to advance the science and practice of character, with a focus on moral, performance, civic, and intellectual virtues such as humility, gratitude, curiosity, diligence, and honesty.

Research we fund promises greater insight into the developmental science of virtues and character, including the identification of relevant precursors, correlates, developmental trajectories, and the assessment of potential inter-individual differences. We also provide support to organizations such as schools, religious institutions, and community organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate applied and translational research on character and virtue.

From 2019 to 2023, as part of the Foundation’s commitment to fund 12 Strategic Priorities, the Character Virtue Development department will be seeking proposals related to Intellectual Humility and the Science of Character Virtue.

At the same time, we will continue to allocate significant funds to innovative proposals that align with our ongoing research and programming areas, even though they may not fit into one of these priorities.
