Description: The CS Research Fund supports independent student research projects in the cognitive sciences: psychology, neuroscience, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, evolutionary biology, animal behavior, education, anthropology, and other fields.
Award: Typical award amounts are around $500.
Purpose: Funds can be used for housing, equipment, travel to research or internship sites, supplies, or other direct research expenses. In some cases student travel to professional conferences can be supported if the student is presenting research findings.
Deadline: Applications are accepted any time during the year, including in the summer.
You must meet these requirements before applying:
If you are an international student, make sure to visit the office of multicultural and international student services to confirm that your research project is compatible with your visa status.
If you plan to pursue your research abroad, the global education office provides information on visas, immunizations, etc. and offers resources for field study in the U.S. or abroad.
Please compile all documents listed in the application as one Word or PDF file, and email your complete application to Sheila Heady, CS grants administrator, at saheDV@hampshire.edu.
Recipients of the CS research grant are required to write a progress report and a final report. Papers, published abstracts, conference posters, or notices of the work should be attached to the report. You will also occasionally be asked to give presentations of your work. We encourage you to take photos during your project to promote the CS research grant on the cognitive science website, brochures, flyers, etc.
Grant recipients will receive funding as reimbursements for the expenses listed in their budgets. Reimbursements will be provided upon submission of scanned receipts, as the student is expected to keep the original receipts for tax purposes.
