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.
The NSF STEP program description and solicitation may be accessed at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5488. This is a limited funding opportunity, with only one proposal allowed per institution. If you plan to develop a proposal and compete for this one institutional slot, you must register this interest by notifying firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by 4PM on Friday, May 11.
