National Science Foundation Dear Colleague Letter: leveraging investments in education and polar science - USA
The Research on Learning (DRL) and Undergraduate Education (DUE) divisions of NSF’s Education and Human Resources Directorate and the Office of Polar Programs have jointly issued a Dear Colleague Letter to encourage proposals that will
leverage NSF’s investment in polar sciences and infrastructure and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education research and development.
In order to advance polar science educational opportunities, DRL, DUE and OPP will accept and review proposals for projects that facilitate access to polar research efforts in (1) undergraduate education, (2) informal science education
or (3) formal PK-12 science or math education.
Proposals in response to the Dear Colleague Letter must be submitted to either the Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) solicitation, the Discovery Research PreK-12 (DRK-12) solicitation, or the Improving Undergraduate Science Education:
Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR) solicitation.
