The Foundation for Psychocultural Research (FPR) supports and advances interdisciplinary and integrative research and training on interactions of culture, neuroscience, psychiatry, and psychology, with an emphasis on cultural processes as central. Our primary objective is to help articulate and support the creation of transformative paradigms that address issues of fundamental clinical and social concern.
BUILDING A GLOBAL COMMUNITY
The FPR Culture, Mind, and Brain Network is a multidisciplinary, multi-sited community of researchers and scholars who share an interest in culture, mind, and brain interactions and scientific and social questions of common concern.
The network objectives are to support research and educational activities that foster collaboration between social scientists and neuroscientists on CMB interactions through workshops, courses, and international travel.
Under our new grant initiative, the FPR provides unique funding opportunities to members of the CMB network to: (i) present and discuss their work and methodologies, including use of leading-edge tools and techniques; (ii) exchange ideas; and (iii) explore areas of mutual interest in the liminal territory that exists between disciplines. Ultimately, the integrative research supported by our grants should enrich explanatory models or create alternate conceptual frameworks as well as build new or strengthen existing collaborations with colleagues.
Grants are awarded to tenured or tenure-track researchers and scholars at accredited institutions of higher learning in the United States and Canada, who are members of the CMB Research Network.
The Foundation only makes grants to pre-selected non-profit organizations and does not accept unsolicited requests for funds.
