NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

Submissions to the NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) Program are due by 5:00 p.m. local time Wednesday, 28 March 2018 in response to NSF solicitation 17-527. To answer any questions you may have about your potential submission, NSF S-STEM Program Directors will host a series of webinars in January and February. Please note that the webinars will be given in two styles: traditional and flipped. The first half-hour of a traditional webinar will consist of an overview of the program itself; this will be followed by a question-and-answer session. The entirety of a flipped webinar will be devoted to questions--the hosts of a flipped webinar will not give an overview of the program. To prepare for the flipped webinar, participants will be expected to have carefully read the solicitation (click here) and/or viewed the videos (bottom of this page) which will soon be updated with current versions.

Additional information is available on the NSF S-STEM program page.
