The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) offers Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to encourage independence early in the Fellow's career through supporting his or her research and training goals. The research and training plan of each Fellowship must address important scientific questions within the scope of the SBE Directorate and the specific guidelines in this solicitation. The SPRF program offers two tracks: (I) Fundamental Research in the SBE Sciences (SPRF-FR) and (II) Broadening Participation in the SBE Sciences (SPRF-BP). 

The annual Fellowship amount of $69,000 consists of two types of payments, a stipend and a research and training allowance:

1. An annual stipend of $54,000, paid directly to the Fellow in monthly installments of $4,500.
2. An annual research and training allowance of $15,000, paid directly to the Fellow and intended to cover the costs of the Fellowship.

See the full text of the solicitation for a detailed description of these tracks.
