Description

APF is seeking applications for the F. J. McGuigan Dissertation Award, which supports dissertation research that addresses any aspect of mental function (e.g., cognition, affect, motivation) and should utilize behavioral and/or neuroscientific methods.

Proposed research should be compatible with McGuigan’s overall goals and may fall within any area of contemporary behavioral or brain science (including more recent forms of cognitive psychology).

Support research in psychology: Donate to this fund.

Eligibility
  • Completed doctoral candidacy, including dissertation approval by doctoral committee, at a regionally accredited institution located in the U.S. or Canada.

  • Demonstrated commitment to stated program goals (dualistic approaches characteristic of much contemporary cognitive research are specifically ineligible).

  • IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.
