I-Corps For Learning (I-Corps L)

A frustration common to both educators and policymakers surrounds the difficulty of getting effective, evidence-based approaches into widespread use in classrooms and other learning environments.  [More]

Improved Mathematics Success

“Students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and STEM-related careers have challenges moving ahead unless they have successful experiences in mathematics in their first one or two years of college."

This Dear Colleague Letter highlights funding opportunities to address these challenges.

EHR Core Research

EHR has established a new cross-directorate Core Research Program.  Proposals are encouraged that help synthesize, build and/or expand research foundations in four core areas.  See the announcement at:
