Mind and Life 1440 Awards

From the Mind & Life Institute

8fd64a52-0665-41b3-afe8-0efc6a1d23e0Through a partnership with the 1440 Foundation, the Mind & Life Institute is pleased to offer the Mind and Life 1440 Awards. These awards are intended to promote scientific research that evaluates whether and how contemplative practice can promote inner well-being and healthy relationships in a variety of settings, with a particular interest in evaluating the application of contemplative practices in educational contexts (K-12 preferred). By enabling high-level research in the area of social and relational outcomes of contemplative practice, the 1440 Awards aim to expand the applications and impact of contemplative practices in the world.

Grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded through a competitive application, review and selection process. The 1440 Awards are open to any academic researchers, although we seek to specifically promote the careers and development of young investigators such as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. To apply, please submit the required materials between January 4 – February 5, 2016, through the online application on our website.
