Innovation through Institutional Integration projects enable institutions to think and act strategically about the creative integration of NSF-funded awards, with particular emphasis on programs managed through programs in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR). For FY 2008 proposals are being solicited in six EHR programs that advance I 3 goals: CREST, ITEST, MSP, Noyce, RDE, and TCUP. The PI must be the university provost or equivalent and, given the focus on institutional integration, an institution may submit only one proposal to the I 3 competition in only one program.
This program responds to current concerns and projections about shortages of STEM professionals and information technology workers in the United States and seeks solutions to help ensure the breadth and depth of the STEM workforce. ITEST supports the development, implementation, testing and scale-up of models, as well as research studies to address these questions and to find solutions. This ITEST announcement extends the previous ITEST announcements by placing greater emphasis on capturing and establishing a reliable knowledge base about the dispositions toward and knowledge about STEM workforce skills among U.S. students. Three types of projects are invited. 1) Strategies projects will include design, implementation, and evaluation of models for classroom, after-school, summer, virtual, and/or year-round learning experiences for students and/or teachers. 2) Scale-up projects would implement and test models about preparing students for information technology or the STEM workforce in a large-scale setting such as a state or national level based on evidence of demonstrated success. 3) Studies projects are research projects to enrich understanding of issues related to enlarging STEM workforce, including efficacy to engage students in the STEM areas, development of instruments to reliably and validly assess engagement, persistence, and other relevant constructs, or studies to identify predictors of student inclination to pursue STEM career trajectories. Innovation through Institutional Integration (I 3 ) can be used with this program. NSF 08-526 (GG 12/26/07)
The RDE program seeks to broaden the participation and achievement of people with disabilities in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and associated professional careers. The three RDE program tracks are: Regional Alliances for Persons with Disabilities in STEM Education (RDE-RAD); Focused Research Initiatives (RDE-FRI); and Demonstration, Enrichment, and Information Dissemination projects (RDE-DEI). I 3 projects (see above) can be used with this program. NSF 08-527 (GG 12/26/07)
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science teachers. The program provides funds to institutions of higher education to support scholarships, stipends, and programs for students who commit to teaching in high-need K-12 school districts. I 3 projects (see above) can be used with this program. NSF 08-532
The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program is a major research and development effort that supports innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. In this solicitation NSF seeks to support six types of awards: 1) Targeted Partnerships that focus on studying and addressing issues within a specific grade range or at a critical juncture in education, and/or within a specific disciplinary focus in mathematics or the sciences; 2) Institute Partnerships--Teacher Institutes for the 21st Century designed to meet national needs for teacher leaders/master teachers who have deep knowledge of disciplinary content and are school- or district-based intellectual leaders in mathematics and science; 3) MSP-Start Partnerships for awardees new to the MSP program; 4) Phase II Partnerships for prior MSP Partnership awardees; 5) Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance (RETA) projects to directly support the work of the Partnerships, especially by developing tools to assess teachers'growth in the knowledge of mathematics or the sciences. I 3 (see above) can be used with this program. Except for RETA awards, an organization is limited to one application as lead institution for any of the Partnership categories. NSF 08-525
4-11 Non-Coding RNAs and Other Post-transcriptional Regulatory Mechanisms in Neuroplasticity and Addiction (R01) (NIH)(CIHR)
The purpose of this FOA is to stimulate research on non-coding RNAs and other post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms as they pertain to addictive processes. Areas of research under this RFA would broadly include identification and functional characterization of ncRNAs and post-transcriptional regulators involved in neuronal development, neuronal function, disease etiology, and disease treatment. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the R01 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, RFA-DA-08-017, that solicits applications under the R03 grant mechanism.
