The NSF IUSE:EHR Program invites proposals which address current challenges and opportunities facing undergraduate STEM education. In addition, proposals that anticipate new structure and functions of undergraduate learning and teaching are also encouraged to be submitted for consideration. The goal of the IUSE:EHR Program is to facilitate the provision of highly effective, evidence-based teaching and learning experiences for undergraduate students in STEM courses.
On June 22, 2017, the National Science Foundation (NSF) will host a free webinar focusing on broadening participation in STEM. Hosted by the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), webinar presenters will discuss funding opportunities specifically aimed at minority serving institutions and underrepresented groups in STEM.
NSF Program Officers from all four divisions of EHR will participate in the webinar. Programs highlighted include Inclusion Across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (INCLUDES), Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), LifeSTEM DCL, Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST), HBCU-Undergraduate Programs (HBCU-UP), Graduate Research Fellowships Program (GRFP), Robert Noyce Scholarship Program, EHR Core Research, Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE), and more.
The webinar takes place June 22, 2017, from 12:30 – 3:00 PM EST.
The webinar is FREE; however, participants must register. If you are interested, click here to register now.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced that their Data Center IT servers will be moved to the agency’s new headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia at the end of this month. The move will take place between June 30 at 8:00 PM EST and July 4 at 6:00 PM EST. This is in preparation for the NSF staff’s relocation in August 2017. During this moving period, the NSF website, Research.gov, and FastLane will be unavailable. This means proposals cannot be submitted in FastLane, project reports cannot be submitted in Research.gov, and there will be no access to the website.
