Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships support the writing-up of already completed research. The fellowship is awarded to scholars in the earlier stages of their careers, when they frequently lack the time and resources to develop their research for publication. Scholars with a Ph.D. in hand for no more than ten years (from the application deadline) are eligible to apply. A maximum of eight Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded annually.
Post-Ph.D. Research Grants are awarded to individuals holding a Ph.D. or equivalent degree to support individual research projects. The program contributes to the Foundation's overall mission to support basic research in anthropology and to ensure that the discipline continues to be a source of vibrant and significant work that furthers our understanding of humanity's cultural and biological origins, development, and variation.
Through the program, grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of efforts aimed at improving the quality of psychological science education in secondary schools for high-ability students. Projects must focus on providing education for gifted and talented high school students.
To be eligible, applicants must be an educational institution, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, or individual affiliated with a qualified institution.
For complete program information, application instructions, and information about previous recipients, see the APF website.

Communities in the United States (US) and around the world are entering a new era of transformation in which residents and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through rapidly-changing intelligent technologies. This transformation offers great promise for improved wellbeing and prosperity, but poses significant challenges at the complex intersection of technology and society.
The Political Science Program in the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences invites investigators who possess the theoretical, methodological, measurement, and managerial skills, as well as the institutional resources, to submit proposals to conduct the American National Elections Study (ANES) in one of two modes, face-to-face or web. The ANES is a personal interview survey, national in scope, that collects data on voting, public opinion, and political participation.
As part of NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR), the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) seeks to develop user-friendly large-scale next-generation data resources and relevant analytic techniques to advance fundamental research in SBE areas of study. Successful proposals will, within the financial resources provided by the award, construct such databases and/or relevant analytic techniques and produce a finished product that will enable new types of data-intensive research.
Proposals are sought for cutting-edge innovative research that could produce discoveries with a significant impact to enable new and improved Army technologies and related operational capabilities and related technologies. The specific research areas and topics of interest described in this document should be viewed as suggestive, rather than limiting.
The Social Sciences Research Institute provides Pre-Dissertation Research (PDR) grants annually to support or partially support expenses related to preliminary dissertation research for graduate students in the School of Social Sciences (excluding Anthropology) at Rice. All subject areas and methodologies within the School will be considered equally.
Seed Money grants for up to $10,000 are available to tenure-track faculty (position at the rank of assistant professor) for the development of larger projects leading to research grant proposals to outside funding agencies.
