The Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) has the broad mission of promoting excellence in undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate students. Chemistry, as the central science, is well represented among the goals of providing leadership, supporting curriculum development, preparing the workforce, and fostering connections. DUE’s targeted programs with hard deadlines provide significant national funding to foster advancement of the goals across the range of institutions of higher education. Projects of interest strive to improve curricula, instruction, laboratories, infrastructure, assessment, diversity, learning, practices, and/or collaborations. This three hour interactive workshop has two components; the first will discuss aspects of each of funding programs, how proposals are processed, and requirements of an award. The second component will be a mock panel review where actual proposals will be critiqued by small groups. The goals of the workshop are to inform attendees of opportunities, to enhance participants’ ability to identify strengths and weaknesses of their proposal, and to familiarize our colleagues with DUE processes; 3-hour session.
