A research collaboration that is co-directed by a pair of University of Notre Dame Professors has awarded a $1.7 million initial round of funding to nearly two dozen projects. The Experience Project deals with questions relating to how religious experiences affect people’s lives.
Overall, the effort is supported by $5.1 million for the John Templeton Foundation. Co-directors are Professor of Philosophy Michael Rea and William J. and Dorothy K. O’Neill Collegiate Associate Professor in Philosophy Samuel Newlands and University of North Carolina Professor of Philosophy L.A. Paul.
The effort involves collaborative workshops and funding for fellowships at the Notre Dame Center for Philosophy of Religion and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The funds distributed through the program involve social science, philosophy and philosophy of religion research categories.You can connect to more about the Experience Project by clicking here.
