Saint Louis University, with the help of a very generous grant from The John Templeton Foundation and under the direction of Dan Haybron, welcomes proposals from various disciplines to investigate questions that concern well-being. We are pleased to announce an interdisciplinary grant project on happiness and well-being, Happiness and Well-Being: Integrating Research Across the Disciplines, supported by The John Templeton Foundation and Saint Louis University. It will run for 3 years, with about $5M in funding.
