> I am writing to you to tell you about a new Templeton World Charity Foundation (TWCF) program: Templeton Independent Research Fellowships in the Power of Information. We would appreciate if you would share this announcement with others who may be interested.
> TWCF will award up to three fellowships in 2016. Each Fellowship will provide financial support of up to $110,000 per year for up to three years, tenable at any recognized university or research institution in the world. Since 2013, TWCF has funded nearly a dozen research projects around the world which have used the concept of information to understand the world more fully. The concept of information offers a promising pathway for comprehending both micro- and macro-level phenomena within a single idea. The purpose of the Templeton Independent Research Fellowship is to facilitate ongoing scientific research by exceptional early-career scholars who are likely to establish themselves as prominent researchers in their fields.
> Fellows must hold a PhD by the beginning of their Fellowship, although they need not have completed their degree when submitting their application. Applicants must apply within five full-time-equivalent research years of completing their PhD program. Newly graduated PhDs are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications will be considered from scholars who identify with any of the following disciplines: mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, computer science, electrical engineering, or the philosophy of science. Applications are welcome from scholars of any nationality.
> Applications for the 2016 round of Fellowships close on Sunday 28 August 2016. Just click on http://www.templetonworldcharity.org/fellowship <http://www.templetonworldcharity.org/fellowship> for more information about the program and instructions for applying.
> Please email any enquiries about the Fellowship to fellowship at templetonworldcharity.org <mailto:fellowship at templetonworldcharity.org>.
