The purpose of the travel grants is to bring together researchers in the neuro- and social sciences, working at different levels of analysis, to collaborate on research that emphasizes cultural processes as central. In addition to fostering cross-disciplinary relationships – in keeping with the FPR mission and CMB network objectives – the collaboration should address a topic of fundamental clinical or social concern.
The FPR will offer three grants per year for $8,000 each to cover short-term travel (for a minimum of two weeks) and other related expenses. Grantees are responsible for all logistics, including making their own travel arrangements (e.g., economy-class flights, hotel).
The travel grants can be used as a stepping stone to organizing an interdisciplinary workshop within the FPR Grant Initiative.
