The sponsor intends to further the humanities along a broad front, supporting projects which address the concerns of the historical “studia humanitatis,” a humanistic education rooted in the great traditions of the past; the formation of human beings according to cultural, moral, and aesthetic ideals derived from that past; and the ongoing debate over how these ideals may best be conceived and realised.
Programs in the following areas are eligible: history; archaeology; literature; languages, both classical and modern; philosophy, ethics; comparative religion; the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; and those aspects of the social sciences which share the content and methods of humanistic disciplines.
The Foundation welcomes projects that cross the boundaries between humanistic disciplines and explore the connection between the humanities and other areas of scholarship.
