American Psychological Foundation: F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award
PF is seeking applications for the F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award, which supports dissertation research that addresses any aspect of mental function (e.g., cognition, affect, motivation) and seeks to understand the mind from both a behavioral and neural perspective. Proposed research should be compatible with McGuigan’s overall goals and may fall within any area of contemporary behavioral or brain science (including more recent forms of cognitive psychology).
Since 1953, the American Psychological Foundation (APF) has provided financial support for innovative research, scholarships and projects for students and early career psychologists, working to make a difference in people's lives. APF's work would not be
$2,000 to support dissertation research oriented toward advancing a unified conception of brain and behavior.
