ADVANCED TECHNOLOGICAL EDUCATION

Description
With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions and employers to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways to two-year colleges from secondary schools and from two-year colleges to four-year institutions; and other activities. A secondary goal is articulation between two-year and four-year programs for K-12 prospective teachers that focus on technological education. Additionally, the program invites proposals focusing on applied research relating to technician education.

GEOSCIENCE EDUCATION

Description

The goals of the Geoscience Education (GeoEd) Program are to:

  • improve the quality of geoscience education at all educational levels;
  • increase the number and competency of Earth and Space Science teachers at K-12 levels;
  • demonstrate the relevance of the geosciences by identifying and promoting traditional and non-traditional career opportunities in the field;
  • increase the number of students enrolling in geoscience courses and degree programs at all educational levels;
  • increase the number of students drawn from groups underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields in geoscience courses and degree programs; and
  • increase the public’s understanding of geoscience-related issues.

The GeoEd Program considers proposals submitted under one of the two tracks described in this solicitation.

Track 1 Pilot Projects: Proposals should describe a plan to initiate or pilot innovative geoscience education activities. Track 1 projects should integrate research and education. Proposals for projects that will make use of current geoscience research results and/or methods are sought, as are proposals that will promote the geosciences and geoscience careers as highly relevant to modern society. Projects that are informed by the results of current education-related research or will conduct new educational research within a geoscience education venue will be considered under this solicitation. Awards are intended to provide start-up or proof-of-concept funding to enable projects to reach a level of maturity that will allow them to compete for longer-term funding from other sources or become self-sustaining. All proposed projects should have strong evaluation and dissemination plans.

Projects designed to recruit and retain students during the critical transition from high-school to college are highly appropriate for consideration by the GeoEd Program.

Track 2 Integrative Collaborations: Proposals should describe a plan to integrate geoscience research and education activities into existing Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP), and/or Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) projects. Track 2 proposals must provide documentation of collaboration between the proposed GeoEd project and the associated LSAMP, AGEP, and/or CREST project(s).

The LSAMP program supports sustained and comprehensive projects designed to increase the number of students from populations underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) that earn doctoral degrees.

The specific objectives of the AGEP program are to (1) develop and implement innovative models for recruiting, mentoring, and retaining minority students in STEM doctoral programs; and (2) develop effective strategies for identifying and supporting underrepresented minorities who want to pursue academic careers.

The CREST program provides substantial support for research at minority-serving institutions across the United States. The main goal of CREST and its awardees is to build the research competitiveness of minority-serving institutions while increasing the recruitment and retention of individuals from diverse backgrounds in STEM fields.

NATIONAL STEM EDUCATION DISTRIBUTED LEARNING

Description

Building on work supported under the multi-agency Digital Libraries Initiative, this program aims to establish a national digital library that will constitute an online network of learning environments and resources for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at all levels. The program has three tracks: (1) Pathways projects are expected to provide stewardship for the content and services needed by major communities of learners. (2) Services projects are expected to develop services that support users, resource collection providers, and the Core Integration effort and that enhance the impact, efficiency, and value of the library. (3) Targeted Research projects are expected to explore specific topics that have immediate applicability to collections, services, and other aspects of the development of the digital library. In FY2006 the program will only accept proposals in the Pathways component of these three tracks. The program will also accept proposals for supplemental funding from existing projects to extend or enhance their services, collections, or targeted research activity so as to enlarge the user audience for NSDL or improve capabilities for the user.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENHANCING DIVERSITY IN THE GEOSCIENCES (OEDG)

Description

The Directorate for Geosciences of the National Science Foundation supports research and education in the atmospheric, earth, and ocean sciences. The Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) program is designed to address the fact that certain groups are underrepresented in the geosciences relative to the proportions of those groups in the general population. The primary goal of the OEDG program is to increase participation in the geosciences by African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans (American Indians and Alaskan Natives), Native Pacific Islanders (Polynesians or Micronesians), and persons with disabilities. A secondary goal of the program is to increase the perceived relevance of the geosciences among broad and diverse segments of the population. The OEDG program supports activities that will increase the number of members of underrepresented groups that:

  • Are involved in formal pre-college geoscience education programs;
  • Pursue bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees in the geosciences;
  • Enter geoscience careers; and
  • Participate in informal geoscience education programs.

The OEDG program consists of two tracks, Track 1: Proof-of-Concept Projects, and Track 2: Full-Scale Projects.

Track 1: Proof-of-Concept Projects - This track supports short-term activities. Track 1 projects include activities that will occur only one time, as well as those that are intended as the testing phase of an anticipated long-term Full-Scale Project.

Track 2: Full-Scale Projects - This track supports longer-term activities that will identify and promote pathways to geoscience careers among members of underrepresented groups.

Proposals to the OEDG competition are solicited every other year. The next competition will be held in FY 2006.

P

PERCEPTION, ACTION & COGNITION

Description

Supports research on perception, action and cognition. Emphasis is on research strongly grounded in theory. Central research topics for consideration by the Perception, Action, and Cognition panel include vision, audition, haptics, attention, memory, reasoning, written and spoken discourse, and motor control. The program encompasses a wide range of theoretical perspectives, such as symbolic computation, connectionism, ecological, nonlinear dynamics, and complex systems, and a variety of methodologies including both experimental studies and modeling. The PAC program is open to co-review of proposals submitted to other programs (e.g., Linguistics, Developmental and Learning Sciences, Cognitive Neuroscience, etc). Proposals may involve clinical populations, animals, or computational modeling only if the work has direct impact on basic issues of human perception, action, or cognition.

Within one week of receipt of the proposal number from FastLane, each PI must send the following two documents via email to sbe-pac@nsf.gov. The subject heading of the email should note the proposal number and the Principal Investigator. Attach the following documents prepared on the following templates.

  1. An Excel spreadsheet with two worksheet pages that will be used by NSF to check for conflicts of interest in assembling the review community.  (Excel Template for PAC).
  2. A single PowerPoint slide with (a) name and affiliation of all senior personnel, (b) title of your proposal, and (c) a very brief (1-3 sentences at most) summary of the main hypotheses and methods. The slide may only include graphs, images, or other illustrations if they appear in the proposal. You must use the template (PowerPoint Template for PAC) and name the file with the PI's last name followed by the seven digit proposal number (e.g., Smith 127999). This will be used during review panel discussions.

Remember to email these two documents to: sbe-pac@nsf.gov; do not use FastLane.

Additional Funding Opportunities for the PAC Community may be found at http://nsf.gov/funding/pgm_list.jsp?org=BCS
