The program continues the use of two solicitations, one for the DDRI competition, one for all the other competitions. The second solicitation provides information for individuals and groups interested in submitting proposals for regular research project awards for conferences, group-travel support, and community-development or community-serving activities, and for research coordination network RCN awards.
For all general inquiries to the GSS program, please email gss-info nsf. This email will reach all current GSS program officers and one of them will reply to you.
Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity. Effective July 1,there are no proposal-submission deadlines. Investigators should submit a proposal when they believe it is ready for submission. The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program supports basic research about the geographic distributions and interactions of human, physical, and biotic systems on Earth.
Investigators are encouraged to propose plans for research about the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity and natural environmental processes across a range of scales. Projects about a broad range of topics may be appropriate for support if they offer promise of enhancing fundamental geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, methods, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
As part of its effort to encourage and support projects that explicitly integrate education and basic research, GSS provides support to improve the conduct of doctoral dissertation projects undertaken by doctoral students enrolled in U.

The Biological Anthropology Program supports multifaceted research to advance scientific knowledge of human biology and ecology, including understanding of our evolutionary history and mechanisms that have shaped human and nonhuman primate biological diversity.
Supported research focuses on living and fossil forms of both human and nonhuman primates, addressing time scales ranging from the short-term to evolutionary, encompassing multiple levels of analysis e. Multidisciplinary research that integrates biological anthropology with related anthropological fields, such as archaeology, cultural anthropology, and forensic anthropology, also may receive support through the Program.
The Program contributes to the integration of education and basic research through support of dissertation projects conducted by doctoral students enrolled in U.
Dissertation research projects in all of the subareas of biological anthropology are eligible for support through these grants.
These awards are intended to enhance and improve the conduct of dissertation research by doctoral students who are pursuing research in biological anthropology that enhances basic scientific knowledge.

Based on the evaluation of proposals in the Fall competition, some Principal Investigators and co-PIs may be invited to revise and resubmit proposals for the Spring competition February 28, and annually thereafter.
Proposals to the annual Spring competition will only be accepted from PIs and co-PIs whose proposals were declined in the Fall competition and who are formally invited to resubmit.
Those not receiving a resubmission invitation can only reapply to the following Fall target date October The Sociology Program supports basic research on all forms of human social organization -- societies, institutions, groups and demography -- and processes of individual and institutional change.
The Program encourages theoretically focused empirical investigations aimed at improving the explanation of fundamental social processes.
Included is research on organizations and organizational behavior, population dynamics, social movements, social groups, labor force participation, stratification and mobility, family, social networks, socialization, gender, race and the sociology of science and technology. Theoretically grounded projects that offer methodological innovations and improvements for data collection and analysis are also welcomed. As part of its effort to encourage and support projects that explicitly integrate education and basic research, the Sociology Program provides support to improve the conduct of doctoral dissertation projects undertaken by doctoral students enrolled in U.
Institutions of Higher Education IHEs when the dissertation research is conducted in a scientifically sound manner and it offers strong potential for enhancing more general scientific knowledge.
The Sociology Program funds doctoral dissertation research to defray direct costs associated with conducting research, for example, dataset acquisition, additional statistical or methodological training, meeting with scholars associated with original datasets, and fieldwork away from the student's home campus. Projects are evaluated using the two Foundation-wide criteria, intellectual merit and broader impacts.
In assessing the intellectual merit of proposed research, four components are key to securing support from the Sociology Program: 1 the issues investigated must be theoretically grounded; 2 the research should be based on empirical observation or be subject to empirical validation or illustration; 3 the research design must be appropriate to the questions asked; and 4 the proposed research must advance understanding of social processes, structures and methods.

The primary objective of the Cultural Anthropology Program is to support basic scientific research on the causes, consequences, and complexities of human social and cultural variability.
Anthropological research spans a wide gamut, and contemporary cultural anthropology is an arena in which diverse research traditions and methodologies are valid. Recognizing the breadth of the field's contributions to science, the Cultural Anthropology Program welcomes proposals for empirically grounded, theoretically engaged, and methodologically sophisticated research in all sub-fields of cultural anthropology.
Because the National Science Foundation's mandate is to support basic research, the NSF Cultural Anthropology Program does not fund research that takes as its primary goal improved clinical practice, humanistic understanding, or applied policy. Program research priorities include, but are not limited to, research that increases our understanding of:. As part of its effort to encourage and support projects that explicitly integrate education and basic research, CA provides support to enhance and improve the conduct of doctoral dissertation projects designed and carried out by doctoral students enrolled in U.
As part of this effort, CA discourages projects that return students to a previous site of employment or volunteer work unless there is a strong justification for the scientific merits of that particular site.
