As a last call and with the deadline of May 1st, I am writing to remind you of the 2009 Sir John M. Templeton Fellowships Essay Contest (http://ethreemail.com/e3ds/mail_link.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.independent.org%2Fstudents%2Fessay%2F&i=1&d=2C8CFE4F-B5BE-422A-836B-37723B77CC0Efirstname.lastname@example.org), which includes separate divisions for both college students and junior faculty members.
The Sir John M. Templeton Fellowships Essay Contest encourages college students and young college professors around the world to study the meaning and significance of economic and personal liberty.
The Templeton Essay Contest awards cash fellowships to the authors of the top three essays, with entries reviewed by a panel of three distinguished scholars. Here is this year’s topic:
“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become
corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
Which virtues contribute the most toward achieving freedom, and how can the institutions of civil society encourage the exercise of those virtues?
