The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience Program (PSSN) invites all full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College to submit proposals for interdisciplinary projects that lie at the intersection of neuroscience, the humanities, and the social sciences.

Faculty Seed Grant Competition

The PSSN Program will offer annual seed/pilot grants to enable collaboration between Columbia and Barnard faculty in the humanities, arts, or social sciences, and faculty in the natural sciences whose primary focus is the empirical study of mind, brain, and behavior.  This request for proposals is open to all full-time faculty at Columbia University and Barnard College that contribute to these interdisciplinary goals.  Proposals should outline interdisciplinary research that involves either direct collaboration between neuroscientists and researchers from other disciplines, or traverses traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to investigate issues relevant to society and neuroscience.
