Awards, Honors and Research Funding

Each year, the Science Directorate honors researchers, students and departments in psychology through various awards and honors programs. In addition, we publish a monthly listing of federal funding opportunities available to researchers in psychology. Both the funding listing and awards/honors programs are intended for researchers from all subdisciplines of psychological science and contribute to our overall mission: to communicate, facilitate, promote and represent psychological science and scientists.
