SBE Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants: The National Science Foundation's Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS), Division of Social and Economic Sciences (SES), National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES), and the SBE Office of Multidisciplinary Activities (SMA) award grants to doctoral students to improve the quality of dissertation research. These grants provide funds for items not normally available through the student's university. Additionally, these grants allow doctoral students to undertake significant data-gathering projects and to conduct field research in settings away from their campus that would not otherwise be possible. Proposals are judged on the basis of their scientific merit, including the theoretical importance of the research question and the appropriateness of the proposed data and methodology to be used in addressing the question. In an effort to improve the quality of dissertation research, many programs in both BCS and SES, the Research on Science and Technology Surveys and Statistics program within NCSES, and the Science of Science and Innovation Policy program in SMA accept doctoral dissertation improvement grant proposals. Requirements vary across programs, so proposers are advised to consult the relevant program's webpage for specific information and contact the program director if necessary.The following Programs support dissertation research:Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS)ArchaeologyCultural AnthropologyDocumenting Endangered LanguagesGeography and Spatial SciencesLinguisticsPhysical AnthropologyDivision of Social and Economic Sciences (SES)Decision, Risk and Management SciencesEconomicsLaw and Social ScienceMethodology, Measurement, and StatisticsPolitical ScienceScience, Technology, and SocietySociologyNational Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES)Research on Science and Technology Surveys and Statistics ProgramSBE Office of Multidisciplinary ActivitiesScience of Science and Innovation PolicyFor a list of cognizant program officers for the programs listed above, please visit the SBE Doctoral Dissertation Contact List.
