The purpose of this mini-grant program is to enhance the effectiveness in the teaching and scholarship of market economics for faculty at colleges, universities and seminaries across the United States and Canada.
The Acton Institute invites proposals from faculty in one or more of the following broad categories:
- Course development —specifically adding new courses or strengthening existing courses in the curriculum which address the nature, morality, function, and purpose of free-market economics. This may include courses that deal with religion and economics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, political economy, ethics and economics, the history of economic thought, or other related subject areas.
- Faculty scholarship —identifying scholarly projects which show promise for advancing the understanding of free markets, particularly in light of globalization.
Ideally, these projects should demonstrate how the free market relates to Christian faith and ethics.
