Academic Grants and Awards

Many cultures are exhibiting growing distrust and suspicion of economics, profit, limited government, rule of law, and free markets. Given this, there is a significant need to redeem these concepts by relating them to theology, human dignity, and the principles of a free and virtuous society. To encourage such developments, the Acton Institute's academic grants and awards programs support future religious, intellectual, and moral leaders who show potential in advancing understanding of this relationship.

Freedom Awards

Over the years, Acton has recognized leaders who embody the values and virtues that help to shape a society that is both free and virtuous with a number of prestigious awards that recognize their unique contributions to liberty. 

The Good Society Grant

The objective of The Good Society Grant is to provide small grants to professors at universities, within the Free Market Forum network, to support their work to develop course curriculum that integrates The Good Society series in a meaningful and ongoing manner. This small-grant program is available for professors at colleges, universities, and seminaries across the United States and Canada.
