The aim of research travel grants is to support collaboration including resource and skill sharing among researchers in the neuro- and social sciences, working at different levels of analysis, to engage in innovative research that emphasizes cultural processes as central. Shared resources may include equipment, methods, or field sites. 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. Travel may involve collaborating network sites, labs, and field sites. 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 a workshop grant.
