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.
Proctor & Gamble is soliciting applications from colleges and universities for projects or programs that improve curriculum, promote leadership opportunities, create learning environments that are stimulating and innovative, and increase diversity in thought. The Higher Education Grant Program (HEGP) is a one-year grant program and awards range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the scope of the project. HEGP will accept multiple awards from universities but caps the amount a university can receive for one year at $50,000. HEGP will only accept two applications per discipline (i.e. two applications from the Department of Chemistry).
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2017.
Proctor & Gamble has an online grant application system, which can be accessed here.
Please read the HEGP Flyer 2017 for more information.
Previous Spelman recipients of the HEGP award include Dr. Yassin Jeilani of Chemistry in 2015 and Dr. Shanina Sanders of Chemistry in 2016.
The Faculty Resource Network (FRN) is accepting applications from faculty to spend a semester at New York University (NYU) in spring 2018. Faculty who are on leave or on sabbatical can spend the semester at NYU to conduct research, design curricula, and/or develop a manuscript for publication. The Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) program provides participating faculty the opportunity to increase their pedagogical expertise, expand their knowledge in their discipline, gain access to resources unavailable at their home institutions, and build their professional network.
