Dr. Sara Algoe, an Associate Professor of Social Psychology, is the recipient of a 2018 grant by the John Templeton Foundation.

The Foundation offers grants in support of research and public engagement in major areas, including science and the big questions, character virtue development, individual freedom and free markets, exceptional cognitive talent and genius, genetics, and voluntary family planning. The John Templeton Foundation invests in bold ideas from contrarian thinkers — ideas that cross disciplinary boundaries and challenge conventional assumptions with innovative programs that engage the public with these ideas, in an effort to open minds, deepen understanding, and inspire curiosity.

Dr. Algoe received a total award of over $1.8 million (over three years) for her project, “A Scientific Approach to Living in Love: A Framework for the Future.”
