BEHAVIORAL AND COGNITIVE SCIENCES (BCS)
This area encompasses a collection of Foundation-wide activities that
provide support for human resource development and infrastructure
improvement. The Office of Cross-Directorate Activities (CDA) houses and
provides information about various cross-directorate programs in which the
Division of Social and Economic Sciences and the Division of Behavioral and
Cognitive Sciences participate. CDA administers some programs directly and
coordinates other programs aimed at Foundation-wide goals of increasing the
participation of women, minorities, and the disabled in science and
engineering, encouraging new investigators to initiate research, and
encouraging the participation of undergraduates in research. Questions about
any cross-directorate activity may be directed to either of the Program
Directors for Cross-Directorate Activities, to the coordinator of the
specific program listed below, or to the appropriate disciplinary program.
