Inaugural Request for Proposals

01/3/2013

The Science of Learning Institute seeks to create an integrated understanding of how learning varies as a function of basic learner characteristics (e.g. over the life span, among the typically developing child, the challenged learner, the gifted student), how these characteristics interact with different environments and learning settings to produce variation in learning outcomes, and how interactions with intelligent artificial learning systems can enhance and optimize human learning.


The Science of Learning Institute seeks to create an integrated understanding of how learning varies as a function of basic learner characteristics (e.g. over the life span, among the typically developing child, the challenged learner, the gifted student), how these characteristics interact with different environments and learning settings to produce variation in learning outcomes, and how interactions with intelligent artificial learning systems can enhance and optimize human learning. The Institute’s work will focus on five content domains: language, memory, attention, spatial understanding, and decision-making.

To accomplish its goal, the Institute is providing research funding opportunities to individuals and teams exploring the science of learning. There are three funding opportunities available:

  • Postdoctoral Fellowships
  • Research Grants
  • Workshop Grants

Proposals are due for the 2013 funding cycle by March 22, 2013.

More information about these and other funding opportunities can be found on the funding opportunities page (http://scienceoflearning.jhu.edu/funding-opportunities).
