Psychological scientists looking to apply for funding from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) may be interested in the following June and July deadlines:
- Cognitive Neuroscience (CogNeuro): June 11, 2018
The CogNeuro program seeks 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. NOTE: This deadline is only for proposals that are being submitted in response to the Dear Colleague Letter: Achieving New Insights through Replicability and Reproducibility.
- Perception, Action, & Cognition: June 15, 2018
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 workshop and conference proposals, NOT for research proposals.
- Science of Learning (SL): July 11, 2018
The SL program funds basic research advancing the science behind learning principles, processes, and constraints. Topics of interest include: learning perseverance, working memory, social learning, and learning environments. Interested scientists can read more about the program’s recent awards to psychological scientists.
- Developmental Sciences (DS): July 16, 2018
The DS program funds research on multiple domains of development—such as cognitive, linguistic, social, cultural, or biological domains—across the human and nonhuman animal lifespan. The program also prioritizes multidisciplinary research and projects that include participants from a range of diverse backgrounds. Interested scientists can learn more about funding opportunities in basic research in developmental sciences and in the science of learning at NSF.
- Social Psychology: July 16, 2018
The Social Psychology program funds basic research on human social behavior, including cultural differences and development over the human lifespan. Some research topics supported include: social cognition, personality, interpersonal relations and group processes, and the psychophysiological bases of social behavior.
