NSF seeks to stimulate educational neuroscience via NCS program
February 2, 2018
The Integrative Strategies for Understanding Neural and Cognitive Systems (NCS) program supports projects that provide new empirical insights, expand theoretical understanding, facilitate the development of computational and bioengineered systems, promote new educational approaches, and generate new hypotheses that connect physical, biological, and cognitive mechanisms.
Advances in neural systems can have significant implications for research on education. To stimulate work in educational neuroscience in the NCS program, NSF has issued Dear Colleague Letter NSF 18-043.
Read Dear Colleague Letter: Stimulating Educational Neuroscientific Research through the Integrative Strategies for Understanding Neural and Cognitive Systems (NCS) program (NSF 18-043) to learn about focus areas, proposal types, contacts, deadlines and other information.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
