New opportunity for engineering technology and advanced semiconductor manufacturing technician education
September 16, 2022
As part of NSF's effort to advance the STEM workforce, NSF and Intel Corporation have begun a new cooperative activity to stimulate transformative approaches to improve and impact advanced manufacturing technician education and workforce development for (a) semiconductor manufacturing and/or (b) semiconductor manufacturing and design.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
