Character Lab Opens Request for Proposals

Character Lab, a nonprofit cofounded by Angela Duckworth, is working to help fund, and eventually scale, interventions to boost student character strengths and skills in school settings. To this end, we are excited to share with you Character Lab’s Request for Proposals (RFP), which can be found at

Through this RFP, Character Lab will award a total of $1.2 million in grants to support the execution of two-year, school-based research projects focused on grit, self-control, gratitude, open-mindedness and/or prosocial purpose during the 2015–2016 and 2016–2017 school years. Each proposal may request up to $300,000. The deadline to submit a letter of intent is September 1st.

If you have any questions between now and September 1st, you might find the website FAQs helpful. If your questions are not addressed by that page, please feel free to send an email to [email protected].
