Here is an exciting RFP for researchers in psychology, philosophy, and religious studies who are interested in “understanding”.
Fordham University invites proposals for the “New Perspectives on the Philosophy of Understanding” funding initiative.
Our aim is to encourage research from both new and established scholars working on projects related to understanding in its many forms. This $500,000 RFP is intended to support work in the philosophy of science, epistemology, aesthetics, ethics, and hermeneutics, among other areas. Proposals can request between $40,000 and $100,000 for projects not to exceed one year in duration. We intend to make 7-8 awards.

Letter of Intent Deadline: November 1st, 2013.
The Varieties of Understanding project is supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, with additional support from the Henry Luce Foundation, Fordham University, and the University of California-Berkeley.
