Posted August 26, 2015
NSF’s Polar Programs, Undergraduate Education and Research on Learning divisions have issued a Dear Colleague Letter encouraging the submission of proposals to leverage NSF’s extensive investment in polar sciences and infrastructure, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education research and development; to promote an informed citizenry; and cultivate the next generation of polar scientists.
In order to advance polar-science education, the divisions will accept and review proposals for research-and-development projects that facilitate the use of data from polar regions in (1) undergraduate education or (2) informal science education.
Proposals in response to this Dear Colleague Letter must be submitted to either the Improving Undergraduate Science Education: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR) deadline of November 3, 2015, or the Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) deadline of November 4, 2015.
Those considering submitting a proposal in response to this opportunity are strongly encouraged to contact Lisa Rom: firstname.lastname@example.org; 703-292-7709, the cognizant program officer who can answer questions and provide further guidance.
