Request for Proposals: Kansas NSF EPSCoR Education & Diversity Grants
Kansas NSF EPSCoR has announced a request for proposals for Education & Diversity Grants.
Download and read the full RFP at http://goo.gl/q6kvT5.
Education & Diversity Grants are designed to enhance science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in Kansas by supporting activities that will lead to an expanded STEM workforce or prepare a new generation for STEM careers in the areas of climate or energy research or atomic/molecular/optical science. These awards are targeted to leverage the educational strengths of the universities in Kansas. An Education & Diversity Grant proposal may target any level of the student population; the general public; K-12 teachers; community or four-year college faculty; or employees in the Kansas workforce. The initiative may employ formal or informal educational methods. Priority will be given to proposals with a significant component that increases diversity by enabling participation in the EPSCoR project’s activities by women, minorities, persons with disabilities and members of other underrepresented groups (such as first generation college students or participants in geographically underserved locales).
Due to the importance of building on existing program strengths, only proposals related to climate or energy research or atomic/molecular/optical science will be considered. These areas are the focus of the current EPSCoR initiatives (see http://www.nsfepscor.ku.edu for more information).
Submission deadline: Monday, November 3, 2014
