Program: The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (STEP) seeks to increase the number of students (U.S. citizens or permanent residents) receiving associate or baccalaureate degrees in established or emerging fields within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Type 1 proposals are solicited that provide for full implementation efforts at academic institutions. Type 2 proposals are solicited that support educational research projects on associate or baccalaureate degree attainment in STEM.
The NSF STEP program description and solicitation may be accessed at http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2011/nsf11550/nsf11550.htm.
This is a limited funding opportunity, with only one proposal allowed per institution. The NSF deadline is December 3, 2013. If you are interested in leading a proposal, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org or Jason Hale, email@example.com by 4 PM on Friday, August 30. If more than person registers such an interest, we will solicit pre-proposals and have an internal competition to see which pre-proposal to develop into a full institutional proposal.
