GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 1, 2018— Seven professors from across the United States have received a mini-grant to fund faculty research and advance course development.
The Acton Institute Mini-Grants on Free Market Economics program accepts proposals from faculty members at colleges, seminaries, and universities in the United States and Canada in order to promote the scholarship and teaching of market economics.

Entrants may submit proposals in two broad categories: course development and faculty scholarship.
