Deadline Info: rolling basis

Agency/Sponsor: National Science Foundation


The IUSE: EHR program is a core NSF undergraduate STEM education program that seeks to improve the effectiveness of undergraduate STEM education for both majors and non-majors. During FY 2018 and FY 2019, there is an increased emphasis on demonstrating effectiveness of validated practices in a variety of settings and supporting data science preparation in all STEM disciplines. Applications for the Exploration and Design Tier will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Exploration and Design projects pose new interventions or strategies, and explore challenges to their adoption, with the goal of informing policy, practice, and future design or development of components in the STEM higher education enterprise. Projects should describe the proposers' current teaching approaches within the context of what is known about effective educational practices and how the implementation and evaluation of those practices has informed the proposed project. In the Engaged Student Learning track, proposals should clearly describe the steps they will take to design, develop, and implement promising teaching approaches, tools, resources, or models. In the Institutional and Community Transformation track, projects should include a description of the participant team, the target audience, the institution(s) or community to be transformed and the actions to be taken to move toward broader implementation. These projects may request up to $300,000 over a period of up to 3 years.
