Math and Science Partnership
For innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. MSP projects are expected to raise the
achievement levels of all students and significantly reduce achievement gaps in the STEM performance of diverse student populations. All STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields supported by NSF may be involved in this work, with special encouragement to areas that are gaining increased traction at the K-12 level, such as computer science and engineering, in addition to mathematics and science. NSF seeks to support two levels of Targeted Partnership awards, Implementation and Prototype. In addition, NSF will support three types of Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance (RETA) projects: research related to sustainability, or policies, or state plans for STEM education; technical assistance for evaluators of MSP projects; and the STEM Education Resource Collaboratory.
DEADLINE: For all types of projects, March 5 and December 18, 2012.
