The Helen Bohmer Daly Memorial Research Fund was established to support and foster basic behavioral research by SUNY Oswego faculty, staff and students working in collaboration with a faculty sponsor. In keeping with Dr. Helen Daly's decided preference for the control, precision, and internal validity inherent in well designed and carefully executed experiments, proposals for laboratory-bound investigations will have higher priority in funding decisions. However, in recognition of the growing importance of research conducted in natural settings, funding may be made available to projects that do not lend themselves to laboratory investigation.
Deadline: Annually the first Monday in November at 4:30 p.m.
Submit: To Linda Cook, SUBJECT LINE: HBD Memorial Research (and year)
