Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA non-profits, educational institutions, federally funded research facilities and government agencies for collaborative programs that improve science, engineering and mathematics education at all levels. Notices Of Intent are due by March 4, 2015 .

Proposals shall articulate an innovative science education program addressing how the offeror will cooperate with NASA to promote understanding of NASA science, by major discipline (Heliophysics, Earth Science, Planetary Science, and Astrophysics and cross-Divisional activities) in support of SMD Science Education objectives. At a top level, SMD science education objectives are:

• Enable STEM education
• Improve U.S. scientific literacy
• Advance National education goals
• Leverage efforts through partnerships

Proposal emphasis shall be on science education that is based on the science, not on missions as in past practices. Proposals shall clearly articulate how proposed science education programs and activities are enabled by NASA’s research and missions and also how plans will align science education activities to K-12 science education standards (state and/or national) to meet user needs.

The proposed effort shall be designed to primarily serve students, teachers, and lifelong learners in the following categories (presented in no particular order):

• Higher Education
• Undergraduate students in grades 13-14 (non-STEM majors)
• Upper-division, undergraduate students who are underrepresented in STEM disciplines
• Undergraduate and graduate students pursuing STEM education degrees (pre-service teachers)
• K-12 Formal Education
• Elementary and Secondary classroom teachers
• Elementary and Secondary students in grades K-12
• Informal Education
• Educators who work in museums; community-based organizations, e.g., libraries; out-of-school-time; and other informal education settings
• Students and members of the general public within informal education venues
• Home-educated students
• Lifelong learners

It is expected that approximately $20M - $42M will be available per award year to support awards of multiple Cooperative Agreements, although a single award addressing all requirements is not precluded.
