Grant opportunity for Religion & Cooperation

The following is a grant opportunity for researchers studying religion & cooperation, posted on behalf of Michael McCullough:

With the support of a grant from the Templeton Religion Trust, in advancement of their ambitious, multi-decade Social Consequences of Religion (SCORE) Initiative, the SCORE Project for Advancing Research on Religion and Cooperation (SPARRC) welcomes proposals from investigators from all scientific disciplines to research the social consequences of religion for cooperation and prosocial behavior.

 SPARRC is the first Strand of the SCORE Initiative. It is currently entering a two-stage research phase. In the Seed Project Stage, we expect to fund approximately ten Seed Grants with budgets up to $150,000 each. In the Landmark Project Stage, we will award up to $4 million for Landmark Projects with budgets up to $3 million. We will consider projects from investigators in all scientific disciplines, including but not limited to anthropology, biology, cognitive science, communications, computer science, demography, digital humanities, economics, epidemiology, human development, linguistics, neuroscience, political science, psychology, sociology, and quantitative history.
