NSF Social Psychology Program Grants

The Social Psychology Program at NSF supports basic research on human social behavior, including cultural differences and development over the life span. Full Proposal Target Dates: January 16, 2018 (January 15 annually thereafter) and July 16, 2018 (July 15 annually thereafter).

Research topics supported include: attitude formation and change, social cognition, personality processes, interpersonal relations and group processes, the self, emotion, social comparison and social influence, and the psychophysiological and neurophysiological bases of social behavior. 

The scientific merit of a proposal depends on four important factors: (1) The problems investigated must be theoretically grounded. (2) The research should be based on empirical observation or be subject to empirical validation. (3) The research design must be appropriate to the questions asked. (4) The proposed research must advance basic understanding of social behavior.
