The Perception, Action, & Cognition (PAC) program of the National Science Foundation has issued a special note (below) to psychological scientists and others, correcting myths and misperceptions that some may have about NSF funding and encouraging scientists to apply for support.
NSF’s PAC program is one of the premier funders of psychological science research in the United States. It funds a wide range of areas related to human behavior, especially perceptual, motor, and cognitive processes and their interactions.
Central research topics for consideration by the program include (but are not limited to) vision, audition, haptics, attention, memory, written and spoken language, spatial cognition, motor control, categorization, reasoning, and concept formation.
Read the Perception, Action, & Cognition program page on NSF’s website, which contains key dates, program contacts, and more.
APS encourages contacting program officers by email to determine whether the envisioned project is a good match for the program. PAC’s program officials are Betty K. Tuller (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Larry Gottlob (email@example.com).
The next submission window for PAC opens July 15, 2019, and closes August 1, 2019. The winter submission window will open January 15, 2020, and close February 3, 2020.
