Those of you with a yearning to engage in interdisciplinary research
should take a close look at the following opportunity:
Jack Haas

*STARS, the Science and Transcendence Advanced Research Series*, is now
accepting applications for the first round of planning and research grants.

The goal of STARS is to sponsor research by small teams of scientists
and humanities scholars on the ways science, in light of philosophical
and theological reflection, points towards the nature, character and
meaning of ultimate reality. Priority will be given to young scientists
with outstanding potential who are relatively new to interdisciplinary
research. STARS will award up to $1.3 million in twenty-seven grants to
research teams on a highly competitive basis.
The grants will be awarded in three stages. To assist teams in the
formation of their full research proposal STARS will initially award
twenty planning grants of $20,000 each. Applications for the $20,000
research planning grants are due *May 1, 2007*. Next, STARS will award
up to five grants of $100,000 each on a highly competitive basis.
Finally, up to two of these grants will then be open for renewal at
$200,000. The awards at every level will be based on the recommendations
of a panel of distinguished judges. Specific information about the
initial planning grants and the subsequent $100,000 and $200,000 grants
is available on our website, http://www.ctnsstars.org/grants/.
