  • The National Science Foundation’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) program is a foundation-wide effort to accelerate improvements in the quality and effectiveness of undergraduate education in all STEM fields. Undergraduate STEM education is critical for preparing both a diverse STEM workforce and a STEM-literate public that is ready to support and benefit from the progress of science. In pursuit of improving the quality and effectiveness of STEM education, IUSE supports projects that seek to bring recent advances in STEM knowledge into undergraduate education, that adapt, improve, and incorporate evidence-based practices into STEM teaching and learning, and that lay the groundwork for institutional improvement in STEM education. IUSE investments enable NSF to lead national progress toward a diverse and innovative workforce and a STEM-literate public. Applications are due February 2, 2021. For more information, or if you’re interested in applying, contact Christopher Tassava (ctassava@carleton.edu).

Open to the following directorates: Biology, Geology, Social Behavioral and Economic Sciences, and Education and Human Resources (NOT open to Math, Physical Sciences, or Computer Sciences). Applications are due February 1, 2021. For more information, or if you’re interested in applying, contact Charlotte Whited.
