NSF Funding Opportunities Advanced Technological Education (ATE) STEM Talent Expansion Program (STEP) Computer Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Scholarships (CSEMS) Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Research in Undergraduate Institutions and Research Opportunity Awards (RUI/ROA) Research Initiation Grants and Career Advancement Awards to Broaden Participation in the Biological Sciences Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP)
CCLI Statistics $40.64 in FY 2005 $31.00 in FY 2006 (President’s Budget)
Course, Curriculum, & Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) Program Solicitation: NSF 05-559 Vision: –Excellent STEM education for all undergraduate students. Goal: –Stimulate, disseminate, and institutionalize innovative developments in STEM education through the production of knowledge and the improvement of practice.
Increased Emphases in New CCLI Solicitation Building on and contributing to the STEM education knowledge base Building a community of scholars in STEM education Identifying project-specific measurable outcomes –Using them in the project management and evaluation
Three Types of Projects Three phases –Phase 1: Exploratory Projects –Phase 2: Expansion Projects –Phase 3: Comprehensive Projects Phases reflect the –Scope -- number of components of the cyclic model –Scale -- number of institutions, students and faculty –State -- maturity of the proposed innovation Progression –Phase 1 projects may lead to Phase 2 projects, etc. –Not required
Phase 1: Exploratory Projects Budget: Up to $150,000 –$200,000 when 4-year & 2-year schools collaborate Duration: 1 to 3 years Scope and Scale: –One program component –Limited number of students & faculty at one institution Expected Results: –Contribute to the STEM education knowledge base –Serve as basis for Phase 2 project
Important Features of Successful Projects Quality, Relevance, and Impact Student Focus Use of and Contribution to the STEM Education Knowledge Base STEM Education Community-Building Expected Measurable Outcomes Project Evaluation
Deadlines Proposals must be submitted by the following dates – Phase 1 -- May 17, 18, and 19 depending on first letter in state name – January 24, 2006: Phase 2 and Phase 3 proposals No late submissions No corrections or updates after deadline
Available Funds $31 million Phase 1: Exploratory Projects 55 to 70 awards Phase 2: Expansion Projects 15 to 25 awards Phase 3: Comprehensive Projects 1 to 4 awards expected
Purpose of ATE The ATE program promotes improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school level and the educators who prepare them, focusing on technicians for high- technology fields that drive the nation’s economy.
Advanced Technological Education Program Projects which focus on one or more aspects of: *Program Improvement; *Professional Development for Educators; *Curriculum and Educational Materials Development; *Teacher Preparation; * Research on Technician Education; or *Institution-Level Reform of Technician Education Centers of Excellence – National, Regional, Resource
