Upcoming Limited Submission Grant Funding Opportunities
To request a review and approval for a limited submission grant proposal please contact OSRP Director Betsy Jinks.
National Science Foundation (NSF) Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic Serving Institutions (IUSE: HSI)
Deadline: Postponed. New deadline to be announced soon.
Funding range: Track 1: Up to $2.5 million for a 5 year program.
Limit: For Track 1 (Building Capacity), an institution can submit only one proposal.
Projects supported by the HSI Program are expected to be evidence-based as well as generate new knowledge about how to enhance undergraduate STEM education to increase retention and graduation rates of undergraduate students pursuing degrees in STEM fields at HSIs. The HSI Program is interested in the successful advancement of undergraduates at HSIs through critical transitions, including the transition from lower-division to upper-division coursework. The HSI Program also encourages projects that develop mutually beneficial cross-sector partnerships (e.g., industry-academic partnerships) that enhance STEM teaching and learning, and workforce development. Projects may also develop teaching and learning strategies and models in STEM. In addition, the HSI Program seeks to build capacity to enhance undergraduate STEM education at HSIs that typically do not receive high levels of NSF grant funding. HSI Program proposals should include a research plan, a project evaluation plan, and a dissemination plan. Click here for more information.
