Our 2020 Jumpstart workshops provide basic insight and instruction on how to compete for NSF funding. The workshop prepares attendees to submit applications to the NSF HSI Initiative call NSF 19-540 (https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2019/nsf19540/nsf19540.htm)
The content will focus on preparing grants for the new NSF HSI Initiative that seeks to increase grant support for STEM Education in Hispanic Serving Institutions (due date September 18, annually). During the event, participants will have a rare opportunity to seek advice from successful grant applicants, to direct questions to experienced and knowledgeable grant awardees, and to closely analyze a sample proposal to learn which pitfalls to avoid.
This workshop is for organizers of/participants in programs that partner STEM professionals with K-12 teachers and their communities.
You are invited to make a presentation or submit a poster about your program model, including defining/recruiting partners, strategies for sustaining, broadening participation, learning outcomes, evaluation and/or research. You can also facilitate a discussion on an important topic related to partnerships.
Complete application by January 31, 2020.
To support institutions working to accelerate Latino student success in STEM, Excelencia in Education and Science Foundation Arizona Center for STEM at Arizona State University (SFAz) offer a transformative set of activities to develop a compelling case for change.
Your journey begins prior to the Institute by identifying a cross-institutional team with members who are passionate and committed to a common cause of Latino student success in STEM. As pre-work, the team completes a comprehensive self-assessment of your institution’s current status in STEM — the extent to which it is evidence-based and student serving (STEM-ESS). Then, during the intensively hands-on Institute, SFAz will facilitate discussion of the data and the development of a STEM plan with strategies and actions to address gaps and leverage strengths. Participants will have a framework to assess their institution’s STEM-ESS capability and a strategic case for change that is supported by evidence. This can engage institutional leadership to implement strategies to enable Latino student success in STEM. Three to six months after the Institute, SFAz and Excelencia will discuss potential technical assistance opportunities with your team based on the outcomes from STEM Plans.
