Important NCS Announcements
October 22, 2018
The NSF Neural and Cognitive Systems FY19 Webinar occurred on Monday October 22, 2018. However, you may still listen to the Recording of this Webinar.
To learn more about the NCS program, please see the FY 2017 press release "NSF funds new multidisciplinary approaches to study the brain" and the FY 2018 press release "NSF funds new integrative approaches to cognitive science, neuroscience".
NSF invites the submission of educational neuroscience proposals to the NCS program. It notes that advances in our understanding of neural and cognitive systems can have significant implications for research on education. Through the Dear Colleague Letter: Stimulating Educational Neuroscientific Research through the Integrative Strategies for Understanding Neural and Cognitive Systems (NCS) program it also seeks to foster the growth of a multidisciplinary community of researchers, including neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, engineers, computer scientists, and education researchers. PLEASE NOTE: Proposers should disregard the request in the NCS solicitation under "V. Proposal Preparation and Submission Instructions, Bullet #2" to add an asterisk at the end of the names of the individuals that are on the project’s advisory board as well as those that are consultants. Instead, proposers should add these names to the Synopsis field of the LOI.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2020 budget of $8.3 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
