The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience Program (PSSN) invites proposals for interdisciplinary projects that lie at the intersection of neuroscience, the humanities, and the social sciences.
ELIGIBILITY: All full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College. Non-Faculty may apply with the support of a faculty co-investigator (see Proposal Instructions for further details).
AMOUNT: Up to $30,000.00 total, for projects 1-2 years in duration
DEADLINE: Extended until March 29, 2017
PROPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS: Available as a PDF here.
Faculty Seed Grant Competition
The PSSN Program will offer annual seed/pilot grants to enable collaboration between Columbia and Barnard faculty in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, and faculty in the natural sciences whose primary focus is the empirical study of mind, brain, and behavior. This request for proposals is open to all full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College that contribute to these interdisciplinary goals. Non-faculty applications (including postdocs and senior PhD students) will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, with a letter of support from a faculty advisor and at least one full-time faculty member serving as co-investigator.
Proposals should outline interdisciplinary activities and research that involve either direct collaboration between neuroscientists and researchers from other disciplines, or traverse traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to investigate issues relevant to society and neuroscience.
Awards will be made of up to a total of $30,000 for projects 1 – 2 years in duration. Up to five grants will be awarded each year.
Please download the full application instructions and grant guidelines before starting your proposal. Only complete proposals will be reviewed. Please submit proposals as a single PDF document by 5:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Seed Grants for Interdisciplinary Projects in Society and Neuroscience” in the subject line of the email.
