Program Details

NSF: Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Pathways into Geoscience (IUSE: GEOPATHS) NSF 15-526

This solicitation supports a coherent set of investments to address immediate challenges and opportunities that are facing undergraduate STEM education, as well as those that anticipate new structures (e.g. organizational changes, new methods for certification or credentialing, course re-conception, cyberlearning, etc.) and new functions of the undergraduate learning and teaching enterprise. The NSF-wide IUSE initiative acknowledges the variety of discipline-specific challenges and opportunities facing STEM faculty as they strive to incorporate results from educational research into classroom practice and work with education research colleagues and social science learning scholars to advance our understanding of effective teaching and learning.

USC may only submit one proposal in response to this program announcement. If three proposals are submitted, at least one of the proposals must be for instrument development (i.e., no more than two proposals may be for instrument acquisition).

Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (whitejrw@mailbox.sc.edu) by July 13, 2015. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI. All Principal Investigators resubmitting a previously non- funded proposal must also include reviewer remarks.

NSF indicates that a letter of intent is required by August 14, 2015 and a full proposal is due by October 05, 2015. For more information: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2015/nsf15526/nsf15526.htm
