GLOBAL GRATITUDE PROJECT
TLC is excited to play a key role on an innovative new project funded by the John Templeton Foundation. This project seeks to uncover the cognitive and cultural foundations of gratitude through global events, funding opportunities, and resources to foster cross-cultural collaborations. Learn more about each of these pieces below and join our efforts to build a global network of gratitude researchers!
A GRATITUDE-FOCUSED DATAVERSE
Expanding upon the success of the TLC Dataverse (TLCDv, est. 2019), the Global Gratitude Dataverse (GGDv) offers fresh opportunities for collaboration amongst researchers studying the topic of gratitude. With cross-cultural studies on gratitude in mind, the new dataverse focuses on bringing together gratitude research from every part of the globe.
Have you collected data that may be able to answer research questions beyond the scope of your original inquiries? Are you interested in advancing science and our understanding of gratitude across cultures? Meeting new collaborators? We invite you to post your dataset description to the Global Gratitude Dataverse using the same quick and simple process as the existing TLCDv, with additional metadata customized to this project.
Any dataset containing a measure of gratitude from any relationship type is eligible. This could be anything from one gratitude item in a broader emotions measure to a more elaborate gratitude intervention.

Several funding opportunities are available for research proposals that analyze data described in the GGDv. If you’re considering sharing a dataset description as part of the GGDv we encourage you to do so as soon as possible in order to take advantage of this early collaboration opportunity!
Graduate student grants: Up to ten graduate student research awards of $10,000 USD each. These students will be selected from all regions of the world to encourage global representation and collaboration. Awardees will be encouraged to spend their funds toward summer stipends, workshop fees, and other research-associated costs.
Early career grant: Up to $30,000 USD for one early career scholar (e.g., Assistant Professor) within 6 years of having received their PhD. Funds may be used for summer stipend, course release, or other research-associated costs.
