The James McKeen Cattell Fund

For over half a century, the James McKeen Cattell Fund has provided support for the science and the application of psychology. The Fund offers a program of supplementary sabbatical awards ("James McKeen Cattell Fund Fellowships"). These awards supplement the regular sabbatical allowance provided by the recipients' home institutions, to allow an extension of leave-time from one to two semesters. Information on the history of the fund, as well as application materials, requirements for award eligibility, and a list of previous recipients are available on this site. See topics listed in the left hand column.
