|Code D||Enter the proper Category Code depending on the program:|
|CCLI:Indicate whether the project scope is at the X = "proof-of-concept" or single course/lab level; or at the|
Y = full development or comprehensive curriculum level.
|CETP:Indicate whether the project focuses on preparing ET = elementary school teachers; MS = middle school teachers; SS= secondary school teachers; or is CM = comprehensive.|
|ATE:Indicate whether the project focuses on a CE = Center; or PR = Project.|
|Code E||If the project has major participation by the private sector (commercial and industrial organizations), indicate by entering PS; otherwise leave blank.|
|Code F||For those proposals where a significant component of the project is the education of the following groups, indicate the proper Audience Code(s). Each group indicated must be discussed explicitly and substantively in the proposal narrative. Codes: W = Women; M = Minorities; D = Persons with Disabilities; T = Pre-Service Teachers; H = Technicians and Technologists; I = In-Service Teachers; S = Secondary School Students; F = Faculty Professional Development.|
|Code G||Enter the Institution Code to indicate whether the performing institution is: PUBL = Public; PRIV = Private; CONS = Consortium; NACD = Non-academic.|
|Code H||If applicable, indicate that the project has a strategic area focus by entering an appropriate code according to the following: GC = Global Change; HPC = High Performance Computing; EN = Environment; MA = Manufacturing; BT = Biotechnology; AMP = Advanced Materials and Processing; CI = Civil Infrastructure Systems; KDI = Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence.|
|Code I||If applicable, indicate whether the project involves any of the following activities. Include up to five of the following Project Features:|
1 = Research on Teaching and Learning
2 = Integration of Research and Education (e.g., direct undergraduate student research; research processes and/or data integrated into coursework; sharing research results via training courses for faculty, teachers, or industry groups; and encouraging greater balance in faculty teaching and research activities by altering rewards, review policies, and resources)
3 = Educational Uses of Technology (e.g., computers, portable instrumentation, distance learning, e-mail and other electronic communication, etc.)
4 = Field Experiences (i.e., outside the classroom)
5 = Connections with Business and Industry
6 = Science Literacy for Non-SMET Majors
7 = International Activities
|Codes J-M||Give your best estimate of the numbers of persons in the indicated categories who will receive immediate benefit from the project (primary effect) and are likely to immediately benefit as a result of another person's participation (secondary effect) during the period the project is in operation (including intermediate periods for seasonal projects).|
