SBE organizations:

SES = Division of Social & Economic Sciences

SMA = Office of Multidisciplinary Activities

 

“The Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) supports…research that builds fundamental knowledge of human behavior, interaction, and social and economic systems, organizations and institutions. It does this through its Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences (BCS) and Division of Social and Economic Sciences (SES), and SBE Office of Multidisciplinary Activities (SMA).”

Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) program

 

NSF Solicitation 15-588: Application deadline – December 1st (annually thereafter)

http://nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504832

 

The Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) competition promotes the conduct of interdisciplinary research by teams of investigators in the social and behavioral sciences. Emphasis is placed on support for research that involves researchers from multiple SBE disciplinary fields and that integrates scientific theoretical approaches and methodologies from multiple SBE disciplinary fields.  Emphasis also is placed on the significance of expected intellectual contributions that are likely to yield generalizable insights and information that will enhance theoretical perspectives and advance basic knowledge and capabilities across multiple SBE disciplinary fields. 

 

Although the IBSS competition will consider any proposal that addresses a topic for which the proposal makes a compelling case that the research will enhance broader theoretical understanding across multiple social and behavioral science fields, social and behavioral science researchers are especially encouraged to submit proposals for research on one of the following three broadly defined topics:  Population Change; Sources and Consequences of Disparities; and Technology, New Media, and Social Networks.”
