If you are a tenured psychological scientist in the US or Canada and are eligible for a sabbatical or its equivalent, you may be interested in applying for the James McKeen Cattell Fund Fellowship, an award which supplements sabbatical support offered by a recipient’s home institution. Recipients of the Cattell Fund Fellowships are able to supplement an already-existing sabbatical award with up to an additional $40,000, which is intended to allow an extension of sabbatical leave from one semester to two semesters.
This award was established in 1942 by a gift from early psychological scientist James McKeen Cattell, and recognizes outstanding contributions to the area of applied psychological research. Psychological scientists interested in applying for the Cattell Fund Fellowship should submit an application online. This application requires details of your sabbatical plan and two letters of recommendation, and will require that you confirm your eligibility for the award.
Recipients of the 2017-2018 Cattell Fund Fellowship are APS Fellow Koraly Perez-Edgar (Penn State University), Melissa Glenn (Colby College), Paula Niedenthal (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and Kiran Soma (The University of British Columbia).
