Upcoming NSF Funding Opportunities

The NSF ITEST solicitation is now open.

Synopsis of ITEST Program:
As the nation continues to expand the horizon of opportunities and possibilities through advances in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the need for a more diverse and well-prepared STEM workforce is also expanding1. The challenge of preparing citizens for the expanding workforce and the changing workplace environments calls for new innovations in STEM education2. ITEST is a research and development program that supports projects to promote PreK-12 student interests and capacities to participate in the STEM and information and communications technology (ICT) workforce of the future. The ITEST program supports research on the design, development, implementation, and selective spread of innovative strategies for engaging students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase student awareness of STEM occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to STEM occupations; or (3) develop disciplinary-based knowledge and practices, or promote critical thinking, reasoning skills, or communication skills needed for entering STEM workforce sectors.

New Funding Opportunity: $2M in Research Funding

Research shows universal preschool education would give all children a boost to live a healthier life. There are potentially many more supportive policies—help discover laws and regulations that would help support better community health.

Two million dollars in research funding is available through the Policies for Action call for proposals, including $500,000 for research on actionable policies that support children’s healthy weight or reduce child obesity.

We seek research in health care and mental health, public health,  education, the workforce, housing, criminal justice, planning and transportation, energy and the environment, technology, and transportation to better understand how each of the different sectors impact health, well-being, and equity.
