SUMMARY OF PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

General Information

Program Title:

Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (NSF INCLUDES)

Synopsis of Program:

Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (NSF INCLUDES) is a comprehensive national initiative designed to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) discoveries and innovations focused on NSF’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and broadening participation in these fields. NSF INCLUDES supports efforts to develop talent from all sectors of society to build the STEM workforce. The initiative aims to improve the preparation, increase the participation, and ensure the contributions of individuals from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented and underserved in the STEM enterprise, including women, members of racial and ethnic groups, persons with disabilities, and persons with low socio-economic status. Significant advancement of these groups will result in a new generation of promising STEM talent and leadership to secure our nation’s future in science and technology.

The grand challenge of broadening participation in STEM is to transform the STEM enterprise at all levels in order to fully engage the nation’s talent for the ultimate improvement of the STEM enterprise. As a comprehensive national initiative, NSF INCLUDES aims to address the various complex equity and inclusion-related challenges and opportunities that characterize the nation’s cultural and linguistic diversity, with a specific emphasis on the aforementioned groups. The goal is to achieve national level impact and progress toward STEM inclusion. Viewing this challenge as a social innovation problem, NSF is particularly interested in using approaches to scaling and growth such as collective impact, networked communities and strategic partnerships. The objective is to develop networks that involve representative organizations and consortia from different sectors that are committed to a common agenda to solve a specific STEM inclusion problem at scale. The long-term goal of NSF INCLUDES is to support, over the next ten years, innovative models, networks, partnerships, and research that enable the U.S. science and engineering workforce to thrive by ensuring that women, blacks, Hispanics, and people with disabilities are represented in percentages comparable to their representation in the U.S. population.

In FY 2016, NSF seeks proposals for Design and Development Launch Pilots to catalyze the formation of NSF INCLUDES Alliances.

I. INTRODUCTION

Diversity – of thought, perspective, and experience – is essential for excellence in research and innovation in science and engineering.1 Full participation of all of America’s STEM talent is critical to the advancement of science and engineering for national security, health, and prosperity. America’s STEM talent pool has a competitive advantage when it is enriched by diversity of perspectives and approaches, which in turn enriches knowledge across STEM. African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, women, persons with disabilities, and persons with low socio-economic status are underrepresented in various fields of science and engineering across all levels – from K-12 to long-term workforce participation.2 Inclusion of talent from all these sectors of American society is necessary for the health and vitality of the science and engineering community and its societal relevance.

NSF Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (NSF INCLUDES) is a comprehensive initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science and engineering discovery and innovation by proactively seeking and effectively developing STEM talent from all sectors and groups in our society.

The overarching goal of NSF INCLUDES is to create a sustainable collaborative process for the inclusion in STEM of women, members of racial and ethnic groups that have been underrepresented in STEM, persons with low socio-economic status and people with disabilities. NSF INCLUDES will improve the preparation, increase the participation, and ensure the contributions of individuals from groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in the STEM enterprise.

NSF INCLUDES aims to mobilize communities concerned with STEM opportunities to bring renewed focus and effective collaboration to solving broadening participation challenges at scale. Collective commitment to specific objectives for inclusion is necessary for impact at scale in STEM. This initiative will leverage investments from NSF programs and projects focused on broadening participation, building on lessons learned, best practices, and proven mechanisms for achieving success.3 4

Collaborative alliances spanning both education levels and public and private sectors, and including new partners, will need to be developed, expanded, organized and built by leveraging state-of-the-art knowledge on scaling of social innovations. For example, the collective impact approaches that incorporate key success determinants of common agenda, shared measurements, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communications, and backbone support organizations have the potential to yield large-scale progress towards NSF INCLUDES’ goals. While the latest knowledge from the science of broadening participation provides a strong foundation, novel systems approaches and designs for achieving scale are critical for advancing diversity and inclusion in STEM.5 6 7

NSF INCLUDES will fund new research, models, networks, and partnerships that lead to measureable progress in diversity and inclusion in STEM, and have the ability to scale to the national level. The multi-year goals of NSF INCLUDES are to:

  1. Synthesize and build the research base for broadening participation and foster the spread and adaptation of proven effective practices.
  2. Support the identification, development and attainment of a set of shared goals and objectives developed by stakeholders, including those from specific STEM disciplines, which are essential for achieving inclusion in the nation’s scientific workforce and in high quality STEM learning opportunities.
  3. Support local/regional and discipline-specific or crosscutting multi-stakeholder partnerships and networks (NSF INCLUDES Alliances) and support an NSF INCLUDES National Network.

Track 3: The NSF Master Teaching Fellowships Track (MTF) offers awards to institutions to administer fellowships and programmatic support to experienced and exemplary K-12 STEM teachers who possess a masters degree in their field and who participate in a program for developing master teachers and teacher leaders. These selected individuals are referred to as NSF Master Teaching Fellows. This track provides funding for three categories of proposals: Phase 1, Phase 2, and Capacity Building. Track 4: Research on the Preparation, Recruitment, and Retention of K-12 STEM Teachers (the Noyce Research Track) calls for research proposals that address a set of research priorities identified by and stated in the 2010 National Research Council’s report, Preparing Teachers: Building Evidence for Sound Policy. This track provides funding for two categories of proposals: Research Type A: Noyce Partnerships for Research on STEM Teacher Preparation and Research Type B Research on Preparing STEM Teachers for the Future.

ELIGIBILITY
Proposals may only be submitted by universities and two- or four-year colleges (including community colleges, tribal colleges, and minority-serving institutions) accredited in, and having a campus located in, the United States, or consortia of such institutions, or U.S. nonprofit entities that have established consortia among such institutions of higher education. In addition, for Track 4: Research on the Preparation, Recruitment, and Retention of K-12 STEM Teachers, professional societies and similar organizations that are directly associated with educational or research activities are eligible. The PI/Co-PI team must include at least one faculty member from a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics department and at least one education faculty member.

FUNDING
Pending availability of funding, the anticipated funding amount is approximately $52,800,000 for new Noyce awards in FY 2015. Depending on the quality of submissions, NSF expects to make an estimated 50-60 Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarships Program awards under this
solicitation, including 33-37 in Track 1 S&S (Phase 1, Phase 2, and Capacity Building), 7-9 in Track 2 TF (Phase 1, Phase 2, and Capacity Building), 7-9 in Track 3 MTF (Phase 1, Phase 2, and Capacity Building), and 3-5 in Track 4 Noyce Research. In Track 1 S&S: Phase 1 proposals may request up to $1,200,000 with a project duration of up to 5 years; Phase 2 proposals may request up to $800,000 with a project duration of up to 5 years; and Capacity Building proposals may request up to $75,000 with a project duration of up to 1
year. In Track 2 TF and Track 3 MTF: Phase 1 proposals may
request up to $3,000,000 with a project duration of up to 5 years (for proposals supporting one cohort of NSF Teaching Fellows or NSF Master Teaching Fellows) or 6 years (for proposals supporting two cohorts of NSF Teaching Fellows or NSF Master Teaching Fellows); Phase 2 proposals may request up to $1,800,000 with a project duration of up to 5 years; and Capacity Building proposals may request up to $75,000 with a project duration of up to 1 year. In Tracks 1, 2, and 3, Phase 1 and Phase 2 projects that involve a collaboration between two-year institutions and four-year institutions (including doctorate, masters, and baccalaureate granting), may request up to an additional $250,000 over 5 years (or 6, as appropriate). Capacity Building projects in these tracks may request up to an additional $50,000 over 1 year.

Cost sharing is required for and only for TF Phase 1, TF Phase 2, MTF Phase 1, and MTF Phase 2. For Track 2 NSF TF and Track 3 NSF MTF proposals requesting less than $1.5 million, cost sharing of at least 30% of the amount of the grant request is required, at least half of which must be in cash. Proposals requesting $1.5 million or more must provide matching funds of at least 50% of the amount of the request, at least half of which must be cash. For Track 2 TF and Track 3 MTF proposals, the Director waived the cost sharing
requirement for the additional $250,000 funds associated with partnerships between two-year institutions and four-year institutions (including doctorate, masters, and baccalaureate granting). For S&S Phase 1, S&S Phase 2, TF Phase 1, TF Phase 2, MTF Phase 1 and MTF Phase 2 proposals, at least 60% of the total proposed total Direct Costs must be allocated for support directly received by the participants in the form of scholarship, stipends, or salary supplements as reported on budget line F.1. STIPENDS in FastLane (or Section E.2. on the Grants.gov R&R Budget Form). Funds requested specifically for other types of scholarship/stipend/fellowship recipient support, such as travel, should be entered in section F. Participant Support Costs, on lines 2., 3., or 4., in FastLane (or Section E.3., 4., or 5. on the Grants.gov R&R Budget Form) as appropriate, but are not included in the 60%. The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program expects to award up to $5,000,000 total across 3-5 projects in Track 4: Research on the Preparation, Recruitment, and Retention of K-12 STEM Teachers. In Noyce
Research Type A, Noyce Partnerships for Research on STEM Teacher Preparation, projects are expected to be led by a single eligible entity that administers subawards to support the partnering Noyce projects. A Noyce Research Type A project may have a duration of up to 3 years. The research project may request (up to) $450,000, plus an additional (up to) $50,000 for each participating Noyce project. For example, a project involving a lead institution and 5 Noyce projects may request a total of $700,000 ($450,000+5x$50,000). The subaward allocation to Noyce projects is intended to support their (1) leadership roles and responsibilities in the conceptualization, active participation, and review of the research and (2) research site management, including the logistics involved in executing the research (e.g., data collection, administrative support, travel, materials, and electronic devices dedicated to data collection). In Noyce
Research Type B, Research on Preparing STEM Teachers for the Future, proposals may request up to $800,000 total for a project duration of up to 3 years.

An institution submitting a Phase 1 or Phase 2 proposal under the NSF TF Track must provide matching funds (cost sharing), from non-Federal sources, to support the activities of the project. Source: Grants.gov (03/17/14). (cas)
