NSF Deadline: Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) Program
March 27 • 5:00 pm
Supports potentially transformative approaches to graduate education with a focus on preparing students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs for a range of STEM careers.
The Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative approaches to STEM graduate education training. The program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers.
Open-forum Q&A sessions with IGE program directors are scheduled on the following dates and times:
Monday, Feb. 27: 2 – 3 p.m. CST
Tuesday, Feb. 28: 2 – 3 p.m. CST
View instructions for joining the sessions.
IGE focuses on projects aimed at piloting, testing, and validating innovative and potentially transformative approaches to graduate education. IGE projects are intended to generate the knowledge required for their customization, implementation, and broader adoption. The program supports testing of novel models or activities with high potential to enrich and extend the knowledge base on effective graduate education approaches.
The program addresses both workforce development, emphasizing broad participation, and institutional capacity building needs in graduate education. Strategic collaborations with the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies, national laboratories, field stations, teaching and learning centers, informal science centers, and academic partners are encouraged.
