Description

With a focus on two-year Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program supports the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions (grades 7-12, IHEs), industry, and economic development agencies to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary institutionschool levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways; and other activities. The program invites applied research proposals that advance the knowledge base related to technician education. It is required that projects be faculty driven and that courses and programs are credit bearing, although materials developed may also be used for incumbent worker education. The ATE program encourages partnerships with other entities that may impact technician education. For example, with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs) (http://www.nist.gov/mep/index.cfm) as applicable to support technician education programs and the industries they serve; Manufacturing USA Institutes(https://manufacturing.gov/) addressing workforce development issues (also see DCL NSF 16-007); and NSF Industry University Cooperative Research Centers Program (I/UCRC) awardees (http://www.nsf.gov/eng/iip/iucrc/) (also see DCL NSF 21-076). The ATE program encourages proposals from Minority Serving Institutions as well as other institutions that support the recruitment, retention, and completion (certificate, degree, program)of groups historically underrepresented in STEM in technician education programs that award associate degrees.NSF is particularly interested in proposals from all types of Minority Serving Institutions (including Hispanic Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions) where groups historically underrepresented in STEM are showing increased interest in advanced technology careers.

Competition Closes

10/15/2021

Description

The Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP) provides awards to federally recognized1 Tribal Colleges and Universities, Alaska Native-serving institutions, and Native Hawaiian-serving institutions to promote high quality science (including sociology, psychology, anthropology, linguistics, economics and bioeconomics, statistics, and other social and behavioral sciences; natural sciences; computer science, including, but not limited to, artificial intelligence, quantum information science, and cybersecurity), technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), STEM education, research, and outreach. Support is available to TCUP-eligible institutions (see the Additional Eligibility subsection of Section IV of this solicitation) for transformative capacity-building or community engagement projects through Instructional Capacity Excellence in TCUP Institutions (ICE-TI), Targeted STEM Infusion Projects (TSIP),TCUP for Secondary and Elementary Teachers in STEM (TSETS), TCU Enterprise Advancement Centers (TEA Centers), Cyberinfrastructure Health, Assistance, and Improvements (CHAI), and Preparing for TCUP Implementation (Pre-TI). Collaborations led by TCUP institutions that involve non-TCUP institutions of higher education are supported through TCUP Partnerships, with the participation of other NSF programs to support the work of non-TCUP institutions. Finally, research studies that further the scholarly activity of individual faculty members are supported through Small Grants for Research (SGR). Through the opportunities highlighted above, as well as collaborations with other National Science Foundation (NSF) divisions and directorates, and other organizations, TCUP aims to increase Native individuals' participation in STEM careers, improve the quality of STEM programs at TCUP-eligible institutions, and facilitate the development of a strong STEM enterprise in TCUP institutions' service areas. TCUP supports transformative capacity-building, community engagement, or research projects at TCUP-eligible institutions through the following funding tracks: Instructional Capacity Excellence in TCUP Institutions (ICE-TI) projects provide support to design, implement, and assess comprehensive institutional improvements in STEM education and research capacity at TCUP-eligible institutions of higher education. By strengthening STEM education and STEM education research, successful projects will increase the number of STEM students and improve the quality of their preparation. ICE-TI projects create and/or adapt and assess innovative models and materials for teaching and learning in STEM, embody knowledge about how students learn most effectively in STEM teaching and learning activities, and bring STEM disciplinary advances into the undergraduate or graduate experience. The objective of this strand is to expand STEM degrees offered by TCUP-eligible institutions or significantly enhance instructional approaches. Targeted STEM Infusion Projects (TSIP) support the attainment of a short-term, well-defined goal to improve the quality of STEM education at an eligible institution. Targeted STEM Infusion Projects could, for example, enhance academic infrastructure by systematically adding traditional knowledge to the scope or content of a STEM course, updating curricula, modernizing laboratory research equipment, developing and delivering professional development for K-12 STEM educators, or improving the computational infrastructure. The objective of this strand is to expand STEM degrees or significantly enhance instructional approaches. TCUP for Secondary & Elementary Teachers in STEM (TSETS) supports in-service professional development in STEM disciplinary or STEM education content and/or research for K-12 STEM teachers in the relevant service area. Examples of project activities include, but are not limited to, professional development involving seminar series and engagement in STEM instruction and content during the academic year, structured series of summer intensive workshops and trainings, and summer research opportunities. The objective of this strand is to broaden the instructional capacity for STEM in the K-12 workforce and thereby to the entire community, and to build the capacity for STEM disciplinary or education research among participating educational professionals. TCU Enterprise Advancement Centers (TEA Centers) coalesce the STEM and/or STEM education expertise into a team, designed to support and promote the STEM goals, needs, aspirations, or interests of the chartering reservation or tribe(s). TEA Centers may address a critical tribal or community need or focus on a realm of research or design that is beyond the scope of individual research grants or that is of interest to multiple tribes. The objective of this strand is to build on the capacity developed through prior TCUP support and apply expertise to collaborations with communities in the institution’s service area, or nationally. The Cyberinfrastructure Health, Assistance, and Improvements (CHAI) strand supports projects at TCUP-eligible institutions of higher education to upgrade the cyberinfrastructure necessary to conduct, expand, manage and administer STEM programs of study, including research. The objective of this strand is to equip TCUP institutions to meet the demands of virtual instruction, advanced computing, and data science opportunities. Preparing for TCUP Implementation (Pre-TI) provides support for activities that prepare an institution for Implementation-level projects. Consequently, they are available only to TCUP-eligible institutions of higher education that have never received TCUP support, have not received TCUP support within the previous five years, or are embarking on a significantly novel STEM strategic plan. Examples of supported activities include completing an institutional assessment of its current STEM instructional capacity, or engaging in conversations necessary to formulate a shared vision of what that capacity should be and how to achieve it. Pre-TI awards can support staff and faculty release time, travel, stakeholder gatherings, and associated administrative costs. The objective of this strand is to conduct self-studies and formulate strategic plans for the development of STEM instructional programs of study. The TCUP Partnerships strand provides support for collaborations that will improve TCUP institutions' instructional and research capacity in STEM fields supported by NSF; attract, retain, and support TCUP students in internships and research endeavors deemed to be necessary for a complete curriculum offering; and engage partner universities to provide an academic grounding and a successful transition for students who wish to study or attain degrees in STEM fields supported by NSF. TCUP Partnerships broaden the number of scientific disciplines available to students at TCUP institution through collaborations with non-TCUP institutions. Active Pre-Engineering Education Collaboratives or Partnerships in Geoscience Education awards are not affected by this revision. The objective of this strand is the development, through instructional and research capacity-building, of academic and career pathways for TCUP students through supporting collaborative projects between and among TCUP and non-TCUP institutions. Interested teams of collaborators for which a TCUP institution serves as lead should contact the TCUP program directors. Support for non-TCUP partners must be obtained from other NSF programs, which follows the procedures of the prior Partnership strands. Small Grants for Research (SGR) strand support STEM or STEM Education faculty members at TCUP-eligible institutions to initiate or pursue research projects or programs that may include undergraduate or graduate student engagement. Awards are intended to help further the faculty member's research capability and effectiveness; improve research and teaching at his or her home institution; create and study new models and innovations in STEM teaching and learning; and enhance the understanding of diverse groups' participation in STEM education practices and interventions. International research or collaborations are strongly encouraged. TCUP students may seek support for international research opportunities under the guidance of a TCUP STEM or STEM education faculty member and an international research collaborator. These awards are particularly appropriate as a means of recruiting and retaining highly qualified scientists, engineers, and educators at TCUP-eligible institutions. The objective of this strand is to support faculty research and professional development that build research capacity at TCUP institutions.

For the addresses for obtaining and submitting an application, please refer to our Common Instructions for Applicants to Department of Education Discretionary Grant Programs, published in the Federal Register on February 13, 2019 (84 FR 3768),or at www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2019-02-13/pdf/2019-02206.pdf. On March 11, 2021, the President signed into law the ARP (Pub. L. 117-2). This new law makes available approximately $39.6 billion for institutions of higher education under HEERF, with funding appropriated through existing programs previously authorized under the CRRSAA (Pub. L. 116-260). With this notice, the Secretary is announcing the availability of HEERF grant funds under the ARP (a)(1) programs under ALNs 84.425E and 84.425F. These programs, with some changes, are a continuation of the CRRSAA section 314(a)(1) program, which the Department implemented as two funding streams: (1) the Student Aid Portion (ALN 84.425E) for financial grants to students, and (2) the Institutional Portion (ALN 84.425F) for institutional uses of funds related to the coronavirus. Eligible institutions are institutions of higher education, as defined in sections 101 and 102(c) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), 20 U.S.C. 1001, 1002(c). Allocations for these programs will be calculated according to the formulas in ARP section 2003(1) and section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSAA. Under ARP section 2003, grant awards under these programs may be used to (1) defray expenses associated with coronavirus (including lost revenue, reimbursement for expenses already incurred, technology costs associated with a transition to distance education, faculty and staff trainings, and payroll) or (2) provide financial aid grants to students (including students exclusively enrolled in distance education), which may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care. In making financial aid grants to students, an institution of higher education must prioritize grants to students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants. The amount each institution must use for financial aid grants to students is determined by calculating the sum of 50 percent of the amount each institution receives under the formula factors in CRRSAA section 314(a)(1)(A)-(D); and 100 percent of the amount received under the formula factors in CRRSAA section 314(a)(1)(E)-(F). This amount is identified for each institution in the allocation table. Assistance Listing Number (ALN) 84.425F.

The Department intends to promote innovative literacy programs that support the development of literacy skills in low-income communities, including programs that (1) develop and enhance effective school library programs, which may include providing professional development for school librarians, books, and up-to-date materials to high-need schools; (2) provide early literacy services, including pediatric literacy programs through which, during well-child visits, medical providers trained in research-based methods of early language and literacy promotion provide developmentally appropriate books and recommendations to parents to encourage them to read aloud to their children starting in infancy; and (3) provide high-quality books on a regular basis to children and adolescents from low-income communities to increase reading motivation, performance, and frequency. The Explanatory Statement for Division H of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub. L. 116-260) (2021 Appropriations Explanatory Statement) includes language directing the Department to reserve no less than 50 percent of funds under the IAL program for grants to develop and enhance effective school library programs, which may include providing professional development to school librarians and books and up-to-date materials to high-need schools (166 Cong. Rec. H8634, 2020). While report language does not create a legal requirement to reserve the specified amount of funding for school library programs, the number of high-quality applications related to school library programs received under IAL competitions generally has allowed the Department to meet this report language directive.

Description

Please see the attachments/related documents section for the full announcement and supporting documents. Executive Summary: Based on funding availability, this project will be awarded to a grantee who will provide consultations, training, software, and equipment to the Museum of Fine Arts of Turkmenistan (Museum) to enable them to create a digital inventory and electronic database. The project duration will be determined in accordance with the grantee. The active phase will include remote and in-country work (approximately 10 days in Turkmenistan): i. Remote a. Grantee will identify expert to conduct the above-mentioned consultations and training b. Expert will host initial consultation with Museum i. Provide consultations on conducting an inventory of museum artifacts ii. Introduce software and hardware used for electronic cataloguing iii. help Museum identify subset of artifacts that will be e-catalogued and used to start Museum’s electronic database system ii. In-country a. Expert arrives in-country and provides hands-on training to Museum experts including pre-determined subset of artifacts in electronic database system b. With the support of expert, Museum will craft a strategic plan framework document that outlines future efforts to fully transition to an electronic database system c. Expert develops recommendations for the Museum on digitizing the Museum’s collections and creating virtual exhibitions and tours. Turkmenistan’s ability to grow its economy and modernize its institutions depends on cultivating educated and informed citizens and government contacts with greater access to information. Via the efforts listed above, this program will focus on Mission goals aimed at building the capacity of local experts and will supplement Post’s previous programs focusing on supporting local museums in becoming more self-sustainable. The key audiences for this project are the management and staff of the Museum, experts representing other Turkmen museums, and the Turkmen Ministry of Culture officials responsible for supervising local museums. Background: Current Situation and Problem Statement: The Museum of Fine Arts of Turkmenistan (Museum) opened in its current location in 2005. It has eleven exhibition halls displaying ancient and modern Turkmen art in a variety of forms. Its collections include paintings, drawings, sculptures, carpets, tapestries, ceramics, jewelry – all showing the creativity of ancient and contemporary artisans. At any given time, about 1,500 objects are on regular display, tracing the cultural evolution of the Turkmen land over centuries. In addition, the Museum has a collection of Western European art from the 14th to early 20th centuries, Russian paintings from the 17th to 20th centuries, and applied arts from China, Japan, India, and Iran. Although the Museum has a modern building and construction which was funded by the Turkmen Government, it lacks the resources to conduct an inventory of its collections and create a modern database with detailed information about all artifacts stored at the Museum. This factor significantly limits the Museum’s ability to analyze the condition of the artifacts and identify in a timely manner those that are in most need of restoration and preservation. Most importantly, the Museum’s inability to properly catalog its artifacts impedes plans to digitize their inventory systems. For that reason, this project can serve as the crucial first step towards pushing museums in Turkmenistan to modernize by shifting a subset of its artifact collection to an electronic database system. This will not only increase the Museum’s ability to preserve, research and access their collections easily, but also provide a space to showcase Turkmen art online and solicit interest with the international community virtually. Review of Past Projects: U.S. Embassy Ashgabat organized a workshop on museum management for Turkmen museum experts in March 2021. The workshop included a section on museum digitization and arranging virtual museum tours. The Museum also possesses experience in implementing the U.S. State Department’s Ambassadors Funds for Cultural Preservation projects that were aimed at preservation and restoration of museum artifacts. Proposed Project Introduction: To address the issues indicated in the Problem Statement section of this document, the U.S. Embassy Ashgabat would like to award a grant to a U.S.-based organization that will carry out the following tasks: · Provide consultations to Museum experts on how to conduct an inventory of the Museum’s collections; ·Provide additional consultations and hands-on training to Museum experts in creating an electronic database of the Museum’s artifacts; · Procure equipment for operating such electronic database as needed; · Develop recommendations for digitizing the Museum’s collections and creating virtual exhibitions and tours. If the current COVID-19-related travel restrictions persist through 2022, the grantee might be requested to consider implementing the program in a virtual format. Project Goal: The project will increase the resilience of the Turkmen cultural heritage sector by building capacity of museum experts on using modern digital museum technology. Project Audience(s): This program will target the following audiences: · Management and staff of the Museum; · Experts representing other Turkmen museums; · Turkmen Ministry of Culture officials responsible for supervising museums. Audience characteristics: · Gender – 65% female, 35% male ·Geographic Location – Turkmenistan, Central Asia · Age Group – 25 to 55 · Level of Education – Bachelor’s Project Objective: Increase the capacity of Museum experts in electronic database creation and inventory management through hands-on training and consultations by U.S. experts.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE U.S. Mission to Saudi Arabia – Embassy Riyadh Notice of Funding Opportunity Funding Opportunity Title: Quincy Virtual U.S. Higher Education Fairs Funding Opportunity Number: DOS-SAU-PD-04 Announcement Type: Cooperative Agreement Deadline for Applications: August 23, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. (EDT) Assistance Listing Number: 19.432 Award Ceiling: U.S. $50,000 Award Floor: U.S. $30,000 Federal Agency Contact: Mario Crifo, Grants Officer Email: RiyadhGrants@state.gov A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Department of State’s Mission to Saudi Arabia announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to conduct three virtual U.S. higher education fairs for students and other education stakeholders in Saudi Arabia. Please follow all instructions below. Program Objectives: Maintaining Saudi student mobility and access to the U.S. higher education system is a primary strategy for promoting long-term mutual understanding between the people of Saudi Arabia and the United States. It is also a key contributor to Saudi Arabia’s ambitions for economic transformation including youth and women’s workforce development. These policies promote regional stability and greater bilateral economic opportunities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, opportunities for Saudi students, parents, and education professionals to engage in-person with officials from U.S. higher education institutions (HEIs) have been severely restricted. The “Quincy Virtual U.S. Higher Education Fairs” program proposes to fill this gap by offering three virtual events that will allow Saudi students and other stakeholders to engage directly and individually with U.S. HEI representatives. This engagement is intended to provide education and career advising, and promote information exchange on undergraduate, graduate, and training programs available at individual institutions. The events also aim to provide virtual networking opportunities for U.S. HEIs with the leadership of Saudi government and private scholarship programs to learn about program requirements and promote diverse U.S. study opportunities for Saudi scholarship recipients. This program aims to offer three engagement opportunities in a virtual format during Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 with thematic focus on fields of study related to Saudi Arabia’s Vision2030 initiatives. A successful proposal will include the following activities: Program Elements · The grantee will offer three (3) college fairs for U.S. HEIs and Saudi students/education stakeholders scheduled in the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 to include: o A general fair for approximately 75 U.S. HEIs offering programs in diverse fields of study scheduled in conjunction with International Education Week in November. o A sector specific fair for approximately 50 U.S. HEIs offering programs in fields of study related to tourism, hospitality management, culture and cultural preservation, arts management, and visual and performing arts practice. o A sector specific fair for approximately 50 U.S. HEIs offering programs in allied health sciences including nursing, dentistry, physical and occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, nuclear medicine, etc. · The grantee will offer a pre-fair program of workshops and panel discussions for each of three fairs. Topics may include: o The 5 steps to U.S study, o Financial aid opportunities for international students o Making the most of a virtual college fair; navigating the online fair platform, o Visa requirements and process, o Roundtable discussion for HEI representatives with Saudi scholarship program managers, and o Other topics proposed by the grantee or by HEI participants. · The grantee should identify speakers for the proposed workshops from among the conference HEI participants or from other sources as appropriate. Some speakers may be provided by the U.S. Mission. Technology Elements · The grantee will maintain a system for registering participants, including U.S. HEI representatives, Saudi students and other Saudi education stakeholders, and other participants. · The grantee will maintain a system for collecting registration fees by U.S. HEI representatives. · The grantee will maintain and manage a conference platform(s) that allows for restricted access by registered participants; moderated group meetings and workshops; and individual interaction between HEI representatives and Saudi participants. The platform will allow HEI participants to make data files available for download to conference participants. · Prior to each event, the grantee will schedule and manage a technical walk-through and test with conference speakers. · The grantee will record workshops and roundtable discussions and make these available for public review on a website or other publicly accessible platform for at least three (3) months following the last fair. Communications Elements · The grantee will design and draft promotional announcements for each of the fairs to solicit registrations by U.S. HEIs and Saudi stakeholders. These announcements may be distributed by the grantee, the U.S. Mission to Saudi Arabia, the Department of State, a/o the EducationUSA program of the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs. · The grantee will design a social media and email communications campaign to generate interest leading up to each fair and maximize participation by Saudi stakeholders. The grantee will provide draft communications materials to the U.S. Mission for distribution through their channels. Reporting Elements · Through the registration data and post conference surveys, the grantee will collect data for use in reporting on the outcomes and effectiveness of the activity. · The grantee will provide short summary reports on participation following each event, and a fuller analysis report at the conclusion of the grant period. · The grantee will provide raw data collected to the U.S. Mission, including participant contact information. Plan for Disposition of Registration Fees · The primary purpose of the activity is not to generate revenue. However, fees to HEI registrants are appropriate to ensure selection of a limited number of participants most committed to recruitment of Saudi students. With this in mind, the proposal should recommend a fee structure for HEI participants and indicate approximately how much in fee revenue is expected. · Applicants may indicate brief outline ideas for how those funds may be used if they are not returned to the U.S. government. Participants and Audiences: · Prospective Saudi Arabian undergraduate and graduate students · Parents of prospective students · College counselors and advisors · Saudi Arabian education officials B. FEDERAL AWARD INFORMATION This notice is subject to availability of funding. Length of performance period: 9 – 12 months Number of awards anticipated: 1 award (dependent on amounts) Award amounts: awards may range from a minimum of $30,000 to a maximum of $50,000 Type of Funding: FY2021 Fulbright-Hays Anticipated program start date: August 1, 2021 Funding Instrument Type: Cooperative agreement. Substantial Involvement: The U.S. Mission to Saudi Arabia will be substantially involved in the execution of this program in the following ways: · Coordination and approval on the timing of the three fairs and the pre-conference workshops. · Coordination with Saudi institutional stakeholders and conference co-sponsors. · Approval of workshop session topics and speakers. · Approval of promotional materials and communications prior to release, including logos and branding. · Approval of fees assessed to HEI participants. · Coordination on participant data to be collected and reported through registration and surveys.

Purpose of Program: The EIR program, established under section 4611 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA), provides funding to create, develop, implement, replicate, or take to scale entrepreneurial, evidence-based (as defined in this notice), field-initiated innovations to improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students; and rigorously evaluate such innovations. The EIR program is designed to generate and validate solutions to persistent education challenges and to support the expansion of those solutions to serve substantially larger numbers of students. The central design element of the EIR program is its multi-tier structure that links the amount of funding an applicant may receive to the quality of the evidence supporting the efficacy of the proposed project, with the expectation that projects that build this evidence will advance through EIR’s grant tiers: “Early-phase,” “Mid-phase,” and “Expansion.” The Department awards three types of grants under this program: “Early-phase” grants, “Mid-phase” grants, and “Expansion” grants. These grants differ in terms of the level of prior evidence of effectiveness required for consideration for funding, the expectations regarding the kind of evidence and information funded projects should produce, the level of scale funded projects should reach, and, consequently, the amount of funding available to support each type of project. Early-phase grants must demonstrate a rationale (as defined in this notice). The Department expects that Early-phase grants will be used to fund the development, implementation, and feasibility testing of a program, which prior research suggests has promise, for the purpose of determining whether the program can successfully improve student achievement and attainment for high need students. These Early-phase grants are not intended simply to implement established practices in additional locations or address needs that are unique to one particular context. The goal is to determine whether and in what ways relatively newer practices can improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students. This notice invites applications for Early-phase grants only. The notices inviting applications for Mid-Phase and Expansion grants were published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2021 (86 FR 30292 and 86 FR 30302, respectively).
