Is Creativity Being Supported?

Source: ResearchGate, Jun 2015

The article discusses issues related to funding grants and awards for creativity research. Topics discussed include ways to support creativity and make decisions about investments in creative potentials, ignorance by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) towards supporting creativity grant, and lack of objectivity while measuring creativity.

Runco and Abdulla (2014) examined awards given by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) and found that the DOE is ignoring creativity—not one grant has been given to study creativity—and the NSF has given more than 10 times the number of awards to research on academic achievement, memory, critical thinking, intelligence, and self-concept than it has to creativity.
