Academic Grants and Awards
Many cultures are exhibiting growing distrust and suspicion of economics, profit, limited government, rule of law, and free markets. Given this, there is a significant need to redeem these concepts by relating them to theology, human dignity, and the principles of a free and virtuous society. To encourage such developments, the Acton Institute's academic grants and awards programs support future religious, intellectual, and moral leaders who show potential in advancing understanding of this relationship.
Over the years, Acton has recognized leaders who embody the values and virtues that help to shape a society that is both free and virtuous with a number of prestigious awards that recognize their unique contributions to liberty.
