Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher education to enhance education in the STEM fields. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to develop a network of resource centers and research centers that support a nationwide system for promoting the development of STEM education. Grants are available in the following categories: S-STEM Research Hubs and S-STEM Resouce and Evaluation Center.

Through this solicitation, NSF seeks to foster a community for 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. 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-STEMHub).

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. The infrastructure formed by the Hubs and the REC 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 nonprofit, federal, state, and local agencies concerned with the success of domestic low-income STEM students in the United States.

This solicitation supports two types of investments with distinct objectives and goals.

  • S-STEM Resource & Evaluation Center (S-STEM-REC)
  • S-STEM Research Hubs (S-STEM-Hubs)
