The Nation’s Science Foundation’s Division of Behavior and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Division of Social and Economic Sciences (SES), National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES), and also the SBE Office of Multidisciplinary Activities (SMA) award grants to doctorate students to enhance the caliber of dissertation research. These grants provide funds for products not normally available with the student’s college. Furthermore, these grants allow doctorate students to attempt significant data-gathering projects and also to conduct field research in settings from their campus that will not well be possible. Proposals are judged based on their scientific merit, such as the theoretical need for the study question and also the suitability from the suggested data and methodology for use in addressing the issue.
In order to improve the caliber of dissertation research, many programs both in BCS and SES, the study on Science Surveys and Statistics program within NCSES, and also the Science of Science and Innovation Policy enter in SMA accept doctorate dissertation improvement grant proposals. Needs vary across programs, so proposers are encouraged to consult the appropriate program’s website for particular information and phone this program director if required.
