|NSF Science Master's Program (SMP) letters of intent due Oct. 5|
The Science Master's Program (NSF 09-607) prepares graduate students for careers in business, industry, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies by providing them not only with a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, but also with research experiences, internship experiences, and the skills to succeed in those careers. The program is intended to catalyze the creation of institution-based efforts that can be sustained without additional federal funding. This program is also intended to encourage diversity in student participation so as to contribute to a broadly inclusive, well-trained science and engineering workforce.
Awards made in response to this solicitation will be funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) (Public Law 111-5); i.e, they will include special reporting requirements and other non-standard terms and conditions. Unless otherwise specified, ARRA funding should be considered one-time funding. Letters of Intent are required and are due Oct. 5. Full Proposals are due Nov. 20. The complete NSF announcement can be downloaded at: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2009/nsf09607/nsf09607.htm?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25
Because there is a limit of one proposal per institution, please let us know ASAP if you are interested in submitting a proposal to NSF for this program (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone 777-4278.
