The STEM Ambassador Program (STEMAP) is accepting applications from faculty, post docs, graduate students, and staff in STEM fields for its 2020 science communication and public engagement cohort. Through STEMAP, scientists design and implement public engagement of science activities in non-traditional venues to reach those who cannot or do not engage with science through conventional outlets, such as by visiting a museum or science center.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has advanced tremendously and today promises personalized healthcare; enhanced national security; improved transportation; and more effective education, to name just a few benefits. Increased computing power, the availability of large datasets and streaming data, and algorithmic advances in machine learning (ML) have made it possible for AI development to create new sectors of the economy and revitalize industries.
BPCnet.org is a resource portal designed to amplify the NSF CISE Directorate’s efforts in broadening participation in computing (BPC), providing a much-needed clearinghouse for the community to learn about and engage with ongoing projects to diversify computing. Many CISE proposals now have a BPC Plan requirement, and the portal was created to ease the transition for the community to develop high-impact BPC plans.
Please be advised that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has designated the National Institutes of Health’s SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) as an NSF-approved format for submission of biographical sketch(es) and is encouraging its use to prepare a biographical sketch for inclusion in proposals to NSF.
The Research Development Office is available to review your NSF CAREER proposal before submission. Contact Gay Cookson to make an appointment.
