TRANSCRIPT

  • Exploring NSF Funding Opportunities in DUETim FossumDivision of Undergraduate Educationtfossum@nsf.gov

    Vermont EPSCoR NSF Research DayMay 6, 2008

  • The NSF Structure

  • NSF Programsin theDivision of Undergraduate Education

  • Federal Cyber Service:Scholarship for Service (SFS)Co-sponsored by NSF and the Department of Homeland SecurityGoal: protect the nations critical computer infrastructure, systems, and networksObjective: Increase supply of Information Assurance (IA) professionals in Federal ServiceSearch NSF website for SFS

  • SFS Institution RequirementsCenter of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE): see http://www.nsa.gov/ia/academia/caeiae.cfmCan partner with a CAEIAE institution

  • SFS TracksTwo tracks:Capacity BuildingScholarship

  • SFS awards (FY2008)Typical award sizes:Scholarship: $400K/year for four years (5 new awards, often as continuing grants)Capacity building: $100K/year for two years (plus another $100K/year if in collaboration with a MSI) (10 new awards)

  • SFS awardsSince FY2001:29 SFS scholarship track grants953 students received scholarshipsFY2008 budget: $11.6MFY2009 request: $15M

  • Advanced Technological Education (ATE)Goal: Educate technicians for the high-tech fields that drive our nations economySample activities:Curriculum developmentFaculty professional developmentBuilding career pathwaysSearch NSF website for ATE

  • ATE Institution RequirementsFocus is on two-year collegesAll proposals are expected to include one or more two-year colleges in leadership rolesA consortium of institutions may also apply

  • ATE TracksProjectsProgram improvementProfessional development for educatorsCurriculum and educational materials developmentTeacher preparationSmall grants to new awardees

  • ATE TracksATE CentersNational Centers of ExcellenceRegional Centers of ExcellenceResource CentersTargeted research on technician education

  • ATE awards (FY2008)Typical award sizes:Projects: $200K/year for 3 years (45 new awards)Small Grants: $75K/year for 2 years (15 new awards)National Centers: $1.2M/year for 4 years (2 new awards)FY2008 budget: $46M

  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (STEP)Goal: increase the number of students receiving associate or baccalaureate degrees in STEMSearch NSF website for STEP

  • STEP TracksType 1: Implement strategies that will increase the number of students obtaining STEM degrees. (If you have already had a Type 1 award, see the solicitation)Type 2: Conduct research on factors affecting associate or baccalaureate degree attainment in STEM

  • STEP Type 1Possible project activities:Focus directly on student learningIncorporate current technologyDevelop interdisciplinary approachesOffer bridge programsIncreases in a particular field must not be at the expense of other fields!

  • STEP Type 2Goal: contribute to the knowledge base of scholarly research in science education relating to factors affecting associate or baccalaureate degree attainment in STEMProject outcomes should be useful to educators

  • STEP awards (FY2008)Maximum award sizesType 1 (typically continuing grants, 15-20 awards anticipated)$100K/year for 5 years for students < 5000$200K/year for 5 years for 5000
  • Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI)CCLI seeks to improve the quality of STEM education for all students by targeting activities affecting learning environments, course content, curricula, and educational practicesSupports projects at all levels of undergraduate educationSupports activities in the classroom, laboratory, and field settingsSearch the NSF website for CCLI

  • CCLI Goals and Objectives: A New EmphasisProvide a framework for projects to maximize their effectiveness in improving undergraduate STEM education

    Increase the emphasis on projects that build on prior work and contribute to the knowledge base of STEM education research and practice

    Contribute to building a community of scholars who work in related areas of education

    Explicitly identify a set of measurable outcomes that will be used in the project management and evaluation

  • CCLI: Organized Cycle of Innovation into 5 ComponentsConducting Research on Undergraduate STEM EducationDeveloping Faculty ExpertiseCreating New Learning Materials and Teaching StrategiesAssessing Student AchievementImplementing Educational Innovations

  • CCLI: 3 PhasesPhase 1 Exploratory ProjectsInvolve exploratory, initial investigation or adaptation in one of the component areas. Phase 2 Expansion ProjectsBuild on smaller scale but proven innovations, refine and test innovations on diverse usersPhase 3 Comprehensive ProjectsSeveral diverse institutions, evaluation or assessment activitiesdeep & broad, combine proven results and mature innovations from several component areas, sustainability, national dissemination, etc.

  • CCLI awards (FY2008)Typical award sizesPhase 1: $75K/year for 2 years(80 new awards)Phase 2: $170K/year for 3 years(25 new awards)Phase 3: $500K/year for 4 years(3 new awards)Co-funding allows for more awardsFY 2008 budget: $34M

  • Scholarships in Science,Technology, Engineering, andMathematics(S-STEM)

    Awards grants to institutions to provide scholarships to academically talented, but financial needy, studentsStudents can be pursuing associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degreesFunded by the H-1B visa programSearch the NSF website for S-STEM

  • S-STEMEligible disciplines: biology, physical and mathematical sciences, computer and information sciences, geosciences, and engineeringTechnology programs in these disciplines are also supportedIndividual student scholarships may be for up to $10K/yr, based on needOne proposal per school or college

  • S-STEM projectsHas a faculty member in a STEM discipline as the PIInvolves cohorts of studentsProvides student support structuresIncludes optional enhancements such as research opportunities, tutoring, internships, etc.Enrolls scholarship students full time

  • S-STEM (FY 2008)Typical awards sizes:$150K/year for 4 years(110 new awards)FY2008 budget: $60M
