A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 11-1, was issued on October 1, 2010 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 18, 2011. Please be advised that the guidelines contained in NSF 11-1 apply to proposals submitted in response to this program description. Among the significant changes are revisions to the requirements regarding cost sharing and data management. Detailed information about these changes is available in NSF 11-1 and at http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/papp/papp11_1/progdesc.jsp.

SYNOPSIS

OCE Education supports efforts to integrate ocean research and education via three main program areas, which are:

1) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site Program. This program provides funding to Universities and Marine Laboratories that allows them to offer summer internships to undergraduate students who would like to participate in ocean-related research efforts. Proposals may be submitted annually (August deadline).

2) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER). This program supports pre-tenure researchers who would like to combine their research efforts with excellent educational programs. Proposals may be submitted annually (July deadline).

3) Centers for Ocean Education Excellence (COSEE), supports partnerships between ocean science researchers, educators, and informal science organizations, providing the public a deeper understanding of the ocean and its influence on each person's quality of life and our national prosperity.

Efforts to support recruitment of minorities to ocean science are also supported through OCE Education and Geo Diversity (OEDG). The Ocean Education program is the point of contact for anyone interested in submitting Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) and Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) supplement requests. RET and REU supplements are funded through the OCE science programs and have no application deadlines.
