Ideas Challenge
Funding: $1,000, Deadline: August 31. 2020

This challenge is a unique and creative opportunity for projects on campus to get their work in front of Templeton staff with the goal of establishing a relationship that could possibly lead to future funding.


This Ideas Challenge is aimed at exploring novel theoretical, philosophical, or scientific ideas useful for advancing the study of goal-directed, goal-seeking, or goal-suited phenomena in nature. Templeton is inviting bold thinking that asks how such exploration might open new avenues for inquiry.  

Please let CFR know if you are interested in this funding opportunity (
