contemporary behavioral or brain science (including more recent forms of cognitive psychology).

Completed doctoral candidacy, including dissertation approval by doctoral committee, at a regionally accredited institution located in the U.S. or Canada.
Demonstrated commitment to stated program goals (dualistic approaches characteristic of much contemporary cognitive research are specifically ineligible).
IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.
Scientific Research Center on Decision Neuroscience and Aging 2014 Grants
For 2014, up to two grants for up to $20,000 will be awarded to provide researchers new to the area with resources for data collection, task development, and/or to add an older adult sample to an existing dataset. The overall goal is to provide the initial resources to support a larger grant application.
To apply for funding, submit a research plan (maximum of three pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org describing the work that these funds would support and why the work could not be otherwise completed without these funds. An itemized one-page budget and CV/biosketch for the principal investigator is also required. Be sure to include a project title and list of team members and affiliations.
Priority will be given to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and junior faculty. Senior researchers new to the area will also be considered. If you have received funding through any of the of the following, you are not eligible for this award:
Neuroeconomics of Aging (R21) RFA-AG-06-011
Basic Research on Decision Making (R01) RFA-MH-12-130
Social Neuroscience and Neuroeconomics of Aging (R21) PAR-11-336
Social Neuroscience and Neuroeconomics of Aging (R01) PAR-11-337
Evaluation criteria include the use of a variety of measures, sophisticated/appropriate statistical analysis strategies, a comprehensive research team with expertise in all relevant disciplines, and a focus on life course decisions that impact old age relevant outcomes. We are especially interested in funding work on health-related decision making. Priority will be given to proposals that use the funds for data collection rather than salary support.
The primary applicant must be located at a U.S. university or research institute. Funds will be disbursed through a sub-award on our primary National Institute on Aging network grant. Please specify your university’s indirect cost rate in the budget. The $20,000 limit is for direct costs. Indirects will be paid in addition to this amount.
The application deadline for 2014 awards is April 1, 2014. Notification of funding will be sent by May 15, 2014.
