NSF Advanced Technological Education

With an emphasis on two-year Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation’s economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions (grades seven–12, IHEs) and industry to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary institution school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development, professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers, career pathways, and other activities. The program invites research proposals that advance the knowledge base related to technician education. It is expected that projects will be faculty driven and that courses and programs credit bearing, although materials developed may also be used for incumbent worker education.

The deadline for proposals is Monday, October 15, 2018.

If you are interested in applying for this funding opportunity, please contact OSRP. Completed proposals are due in OSRP at least two business days prior to the deadline set by the sponsor.
