The *Fund Consciousness Science!* project aims to align US-based
consciousness science with mainstream funding mechanisms by identifying and
nurturing overlap in goals between government-based funding sources (e.g.
NIH, NSF) and consciousness researchers in the United States.

The current state of funding for consciousness research in the United
States is challenging (Michel et al. 2019)
with mainstream government-based funding mechanisms, such as the NIH R01
mechanism or similar, often seeming to be misaligned with stated goals of
consciousness researchers. To remedy this, we are running a pilot project
to align US-based consciousness science with mainstream funding mechanisms,
such that consciousness science in the United States can compete for
funding and thus scientific progress at rates on par with other regions
such as the E.U.

The project includes:


   a two-day workshop on March 24-26, 2022 (Washington, DC) bringing
   together Early Career Researchers in consciousness science with senior
   researchers and program officers, plus

   subawards of about $30,000 USD intended to provide pilot data for an NIH
   R01 proposal or similar

Applications are now open! Applications are due on *November 1, 2021*.
Please see our website for further details:

Looking forward to seeing many of you in the spring,
