SD EPSCoR Impacts
SD EPSCoR Impacts for the Week of October 18, 2018:
Make sure to visit NativeScienceReport.org, a website that reports on the larger effort to build strong and innovative math and science programs within all of the nation’s approximately three dozen tribal colleges and universities. Originally called the Native Engineering Report, the publication started out reporting on the development of pre-engineering programs within tribal and Native-serving colleges across the United States. The site has recently broadened its scope to explore how these innovative Indian-led colleges and universities are building science, math, and engineering programs that reflect the needs of their students and values of their reservation communities. The website is sponsored by Sisseton Wahpeton College and funded through the National Science foundation. If you have story ideas or would like to collaborate, contact Paul Boyer.
Fostering the growth of a globally competitive and diverse research workforce and advancing the scientific and innovation skills of the Nation is a strategic objective of NSF. The Nation’s global competitiveness depends critically on the readiness of the Nation’s STEM workforce and NSF seeks to continue to invest in programs that directly advance this workforce. As part of this effort, a supplemental funding opportunity is available in fiscal years FY 2019 and FY 2020 to provide support for non-academic research internships for graduate students to support career opportunities in any sector of the U.S. economy.
