Congratulations to our own Christian Miller, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Zachary T. Smith Faculty Fellow at Wake Forest University, who is Principal Investigator and Project Leader for The Character Project, which has recently been awarded a $3.67 million dollar grant from the Templeton Foundation to fund "new advances in the study of character."  According to Christian, "$2 million will be devoted to three separate funding competitions, one of which
will be for philosophers working on topics related to character broadly
conceived, including but not limited to the recent work on the empirical
adequacy of character traits."

Congratulations, Christian, and thank you for the opportunities this project is providing philosophers!
