Competition Closes

07/21/2021

Description

The fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) hold much promise as sectors of the economy where we can expect to see continuous vigorous growthin the coming decades. STEM job creation is expected to outpace non-STEM job creation significantly, according to the Commerce Department, reflecting the importance of STEM knowledge to the US economy. The National Science Foundation (NSF) plays a leadership role in developing and implementing efforts to enhance and improve STEM education in the United States. Through the NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) initiative, the agency continues to make a substantial commitment to the highest caliber undergraduate STEM education through a Foundation-wide framework of investments. The IUSE: EHR is a core NSF STEM education program that seeks to promote novel, creative, and transformative approaches to generating and using new knowledge about STEM teaching and learning to improve STEM education for undergraduate students. The program is open to application from all institutions of higher education and associated organizations. NSF places high value on educating students to be leaders and innovators in emerging and rapidly changing STEM fields as well as educating a scientifically literate public. In pursuit of this goal, IUSE: EHR supports projects that seek to bring recent advances in STEM knowledge into undergraduate education, that adapt, improve, and incorporate evidence-based practices into STEM teaching and learning, and that lay the groundwork for institutional improvement in STEM education. In addition to innovative work at the frontier of STEM education, this program also encourages replication of research studies at different types of institutions and with different student bodies to produce deeper knowledge about the effectiveness and transferability of findings. IUSE: EHR also seeks to support projects that have high potential for broader societal impacts, including improved diversity of students and instructors participating in STEM education, professional development for instructors to ensure adoption of new and effective pedagogical techniques that meet the changing needs of students, and projects that promote institutional partnerships for collaborative research and development. IUSE: EHR especially welcomes proposals that will pair well with the efforts of NSF INCLUDES (https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/nsfincludes/index.jsp) to develop STEM talent from all sectors and groups in our society. For all the above objectives, the National Science Foundation invests primarily in evidence-based and knowledge-generating approaches to understand and improve STEM learning and learning environments, improve the diversity of STEM students and majors, and prepare STEM majors for the workforce. In addition to contributing to STEM education in the host institution(s), proposals should have the promise of adding more broadly to our understanding of effective teaching and learning practices. The IUSE: EHR program features two tracks: (1) Engaged Student Learning and (2) Institutional and Community Transformation. Several levels of scope, scale, and funding are available within each track, as summarized in Table 1. Table 1: Overview of Engaged Student Learning and Institutional and Community Transformation tracks, levels, and deadlines Track Level Deadlines Engaged Student Learning Level 1: up to $300,000 for up to three years July 21, 2021 January 19, 2022 3rd Wednesday in January and July thereafter Level 2: $300,001 - $600,000 for up to three years July 21, 2021 3rd Wednesday in July thereafter Level 3: $600,001 - $2 million for up to five years July 21, 2021 3rd Wednesday in July thereafter Institutional and Community Transformation Capacity-Building: $150K (single institution) or $300K (multiple institutions) for up to two years July 21, 2021 January 19, 2022 3rd Wednesday in January and July thereafter Level 1: up to $300,000 for up to three years July 21, 2021 January 19, 2022 3rd Wednesday in January and July thereafter Level 2: $300,001 - $2 million (single institution) or $3 million (multiple institutions and research centers) for up to five years July 21, 2021 3rd Wednesday in July thereafter

The purpose is to accelerate reductions in maternal,newborn, and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden, USAID-supported countries by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services. This main APS document (located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting) outlines the goal, purpose, expected results, and priorities of MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health [MNCH/FP/RH] Services to Scale), and may result in multiple awards issued under subsequent APS Rounds. Note: When referencing MOMENTUM in this document, it is referring to the full portfolio of possible awards under this overall purpose. This specific document is an umbrella APS and will not be accepting concept papers or applications. Prospective applicants will be provided a fair opportunity to develop and submit competitive concept papers to USAID for potential funding via discrete Rounds under this APS. For the purposes of the MOMENTUM APS, a “Round” is defined as a specific program description that falls under the larger MOMENTUM APS goal,purpose, and results but is tailored to a certain focus. Under each Round,applicants will first submit a short concept paper that will be reviewed for responsiveness to the overall MOMENTUM purpose, selected results, and Round’s focus and then scored according to the evaluation criteria provided in the Round document. If an applicant is successful in the concept paper stage, applicant representatives may be invited to join a co-creation workshop. Following the co-creation process, selected applicants (individual organizations and/or consortia developed at concept paper stage or during co-creation) will be requested to submit a Full Application, the content and format of which will be provided in greater detail by the Agreement Officer. Publishing this APS does not commit USAID to make any awards. USAID also reserves the right to not conduct a co-creation workshop and request Full Applications from successful applicants at concept paper stage. Pending funding availability, there may be multiple Rounds for this APS that will all aim to meet the Purpose and Results mentioned above. The financial range for award(s) will be specified in each Round. Issuance of this APS does not constitute an award or commitment on the part of the USG, nor does it commit the USG to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a concept paper or an application. USAID reserves the right to close or amend the APS on or before the closing date of September 30, 2025. Therefore, for each issued Round, organizations are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered for review to maximize the possibility of receiving available funding. As Rounds occur, notifications will be posted on Grants.gov. Please refer to the specific Round documents for detailed information on the concept paper submission guidance including Round points of contact, concept paper requirements, and evaluation criteria for the specific Round. These Round documents should be located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting.

04/19/2021

Description

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) administers the nutrition assistance programs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The mission of FNS is to work with partners to provide food and nutrition education to people in need in a way that inspires public confidence and supports American agriculture. Among these nutrition assistance programs are the Child Nutrition Programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Administered by State agencies, the Child Nutrition Programs help fight hunger and obesity by reimbursing organizations such as schools, child care centers, and afterschool programs for providing nutritionally balanced meals to children at low or no cost.Team Nutrition Training Grants are authorized under Public Law 111–296, which amended Section 19 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966. As authorized under Section 6(a)(3) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, 42 USC 1755(a)(3), FNS provides training and technical assistance for school nutrition professionals, nutrition education for children and their caregivers, and encourages school and community support for healthy eating and physical activity. These activities are implemented under the Agency’s Team Nutrition initiative. Team Nutrition Training Grants have been a part of the Team Nutrition initiative since its inception in 1995. These grants have provided State agencies with funds to implement training and nutrition education within the Child Nutrition Programs in their State.On October 16, 2020, the USDA FNS awarded over 4.1 million in funding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Development (Cohort A) Grantees consisting of fifteen State agencies that administer the NSLP. The FY2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Recipe Development (Cohort B) focuses on the same grant purpose and objectives as the Cohort A grant, and is open to State agencies administering the NSLP that did not receive a FY2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Development in October 2020 as part of Cohort A.The FY 2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Recipe Development supports States in understanding, developing, and using standardized recipes within the School Meal Programs. Using grant funds, States will be able to develop nutritious and tasty recipes that incorporate local agricultural products and appeal to students’ taste preferences. States will build their capacity to standardize recipes, show how standardized recipes credit towards school meal pattern requirements, and assist School Food Authorities in engaging students in menu development. Standardized recipes are critical to the success of school meals because they provide consistent results in quality, quantity, and nutrient contribution, while helping to reduce food waste and food costs. FNS intends to share the recipes States develop under this grant via the FNS Team Nutrition website and the Institute of Child Nutrition’s online resource center known as the Child Nutrition Recipe Box (https://theicn.org/cnrb).

Description

Through this solicitation, NSF seeks to foster a network of S-STEM stakeholders and further develop the infrastructure needed to generate and disseminate new knowledge, successful practices and effective design principles arising from NSF S-STEM projects nationwide. The ultimate vision of the legislation governing the S-STEM parent program[1] (and of the current S-STEM-Net solicitation) is that all Americans, regardless of economic status, should be able to contribute to the American innovation economy if they so desire. To support collaboration within the S-STEM network, NSF will fund two types of investments: An S-STEM Resource and Evaluation Center (S-STEM-REC) and several S-STEM Research Hubs (S-STEM-Hub). The S-STEM Network(S-STEM-Net) will collaborate to create synergies and sustain a robust national ecosystem consisting of multi-sector partners supporting domestic low-income STEM students in achieving their career goals, while also ensuring access, inclusion, and adaptability to changing learning needs. This network will also synthesize current achievements and investigate evolving barriers to the success of this student population. It will also disseminate the context and circumstances by which interventions and practices that support graduation of domestic low-income students pursuing careers in STEM are successful. The target audience for this dissemination effort is the community of higher education institutions, faculty, scholars, researchers and evaluators, local and regional organizations, industry, and other nonprofit, federal, state, and local agencies concerned with the success of domestic low-income STEM students in the United States.

Description

The Office of English Language Programs of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA/A/L) announces an open competition to administer the FY 2021 English Access Microscholarship Program (Access). The Access Program is a multi-faceted program designed to support global English language learning needs and to improve English teaching globally. The program exposes participants to U.S. culture and democratic values through English language scholarships for youth, professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators, and programming for alumni. The program’s three-pronged approach includes, but is not limited to:1) Teacher professional development: Participants receive professional development opportunities that strengthen student-centered learning; critical thinking and communicative methodologies; understanding of U.S. culture, democratic values, and service learning. Funds support programming for teachers, directors, administrators, and ministry officials in-country, in the region, and in the U.S. Programs may be virtual, hybrid or in-person depending on local health and safety conditions and on the theme or target audience for the program. The program helps teachers serve as role models and mentors to other English teachers in their respective countries and regions and provides a multiplier effect that strengthens the teaching of English in their countries.2) Scholarships: Bright, underserved students worldwide, primarily aged 13 to 20, receive a foundation of English language, leadership and professional skills, and exposure to U.S. culture and democratic values. Funds support in-country study for English classes close to the participants’ homes. Classes are usually taught in-person when health and safety conditions allow, but may move to online teaching to ensure the health and safety of the students and teachers. Hybrid and virtual-only programs may be piloted for pedagogical or programmatic purposes. The programs increase the students’ potential to participate successfully in the socio-economic development of their countries and increase their chances of competing for and participating in future U.S. exchange and study programs. 3) Alumni: Participants receive opportunities that strengthen their foundation of English language, leadership and/or professional skills and understanding of U.S. culture and democratic values acquired under the scholarship program. Funds support programming for alumni in-country, in the region, and in the U.S. These programs are designed locally by U.S. embassies based on public diplomacy goals and may be offered in-person, virtually or in a hybrid format depending on the goals of the program and conditions on the ground.Please see the full announcement for additional details.
