August and September 2018 NSF Grant Submission Deadlines

Psychological scientists looking to apply for funding from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) may be interested in the following August and September deadlines:

The PAC program funds basic behavioral research focusing on perceptual, motor, and cognitive processes and interactions. Topics of interest include vision, audition, haptics, attention, memory, written and spoken language, spatial cognition, motor control, categorization, reasoning, and concept formation. This proposal deadline is only for research proposals only, NOT workshops and conference proposals. The submission window opens July 15th and closes August 1st.

The CogNeuro program seeks grant proposals aimed at advancing understanding of the neural mechanisms of human cognition. Central research topics for consideration include attention, learning, memory, decision making, language, social cognition, and emotions.

The DRMS program seeks proposals directed at increasing the understanding and effectiveness of decision making by individuals, groups, organizations, and society. Funded research must be grounded in theory and generalizable.

The MMS program supports the development of innovative analytical and statistical methods and models for the social, behavioral, and economic sciences. MMS seeks proposals that are methodologically innovative, grounded in theory, and have potential utility for multiple fields.

The SoO program funds proposals aimed at advancing our understanding of how organizations develop, form and operate. Topics for consideration include structures, routines, effectiveness, competitiveness, innovation, dynamics, change, and evolution.
