In October 2018, NSF implemented the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email changes required by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve email security. Some email routing practices (such as auto-forwarding to personal email accounts and sending messages through third-party providers) may cause messages to be flagged as potentially fraudulent by DMARC security checks and blocked. If your email is auto-forwarded to another account, such as a personal email account, you may not receive emails from NSF in that forwarded account. More information about DMARC and email delivery from NSF.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program (STEP)
"The STEM Talent Expansion Program is not accepting proposals for the December 3, 2013 deadline. However, there is a broader funding opportunity to support projects that address immediate challenges and opportunities facing undergraduate STEM education, as well as those that anticipate new structures and functions of the undergraduate STEM learning and teaching enterprise.
To accomplish the goals of the STEP project that you have in mind, we invite you to submit proposals to the program description, "Improving Undergraduate STEM Education," available here. Recognizing that the preparation of a globally-competitive workforce, including future teachers, and a scientifically literate populace requires excellent undergraduate STEM education, NSF invests in a wide-range of research-based and research-generating approaches to understanding STEM learning; to designing, testing, and studying curricular change and innovation; to disseminating and implementing best practices; and to broadening participation of individuals and institutions in STEM fields.
Proposals for support of projects should be submitted under (NSF) PD 14-7513. Please note the target date of February 4, 2014.

Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 19-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after February 25, 2019. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 19-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals
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.
This program provides educational opportunities for Undergraduate Students. This program supports institutions which may provide support to individuals at those institutions. To inquire about opportunities in this program, contact one of the awarded institutions, available by clicking on the Awards link.
