Graduate Student Research Funding

Princeton Graduate Student Research Funding 2016-2017

We are pleased to announce that Princeton graduate students who are active in the Cognitive Science Program may request research funds to support interdisciplinary research in cognitive science. Preference will be given to collaborative proposals that involve people from two or more disciplines.  Requests should normally be for amounts up to $5000 per project, however larger requests may occasionally be considered based on merit, interdisciplinarity, and availability of funding.

Graduate students seeking to obtain such funding should submit an application through SAFE and upload a 1-2 page description of the project, highlighting its interdisciplinary character and relationship to cognitive science. Proposals should also include a short statement of the student(s)’s involvement with the Program, as well as a brief budget justification.  (Please note that any travel expenses will not be covered by this funding opportunity.) Applicants should also indicate whether they have other funding available to them to support the project, and how crucial receiving cognitive science funding is to the viability of the project.

For full consideration in AY16-17, please submit an application through SAFE by Tuesday, November 8, 2016.  Any questions should be directed to
