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 (see 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:

   1. 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

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

Applications are now open! Applications are due on **November 8, 2021**.
Please see our website for further details:

Looking forward to seeing many of you in the spring,
Brian Odegaard and Megan Peters
