(James McKeen) Cattell Fund
Supplemental Sabbatical Awards for Psychologists
http://www.cattell.duke.edu/
Deadline: Dec. 7
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. James McKeen Cattell Fund awards are available to psychologists who are faculty members at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and are eligible, according to the regulations of their own institutions, for a sabbatical leave or its equivalent. Eligible candidates must be either tenured faculty members or nontenured associate professors in a tenure-track position. Ordinarily, awards are made to persons who have been continuously employed in an academic teaching or administrative position for the previous five years. The Fund has a strong preference for supporting applicants who have not had a leave with outside support during that period. The maximum award is limited to the lesser of (1) half the recipient's salary for the academic year, (2) an amount less than half salary that will bring the total of the university allowance plus the award up to the individual's normal academic-year salary, or (3) a ceiling of $35,000. For more information, contact: Dr. Christina L. Williams, The James McKeen Cattell Fund, Dept. of Psychology & Brain Sciences, Box 90086, Duke Univ., 9 Flowers Drive, Durham, NC 27708-0086;E-mail: williams@psych.duke.edu

FastWeb
http://www.fastweb.com/.
If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current.
