Overview of Federal Funding Opportunities for Behavioral and Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities
October 14, 2020
The social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and the arts have a critical role to play in answering broader scientific and social questions about technological innovation, national security, healthcare and human well-being, and sustainability, among other issues. In recent years, federal funding agencies have placed an emphasis on interdisciplinary and convergence research that has propelled researchers in the social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and the arts to directly articulate the value and potential outcomes of their work.
To help researchers navigate this increasingly complex space, SIOP’s government relations partners at Lewis-Burke Associates LLC compiles an annual Overview of Federal Funding Opportunities for Behavioral and Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities. This document provides a broad catalog of funding that span the federal government. I-O psychology researchers can use this guide to review updates to programs in key federal agencies of interest and to better understand research priorities of potentially unfamiliar offices. This guide is intended to be informative and pique interest among researchers in viewing their work through interdisciplinary perspectives and considering how their findings may address priorities identified by the offices.
