The opportunities listed below are relevant to VSE faculty.  Because 
these are limited-submission programs, there will be internal 
competitions at Mason to determine who can go forward with a proposal.  
I'm sending these announcement now (and not part of my weekly news) 
since there are tight deadlines for the internal competitions.

The internal review deadlines are:

  * Research Experiences for Teachers: 9/8/17, 8am
  * Innovations in Graduate Education: 9/8/17, 8am
  * CISE Research Infrastructure: 9/15/17, 8am
  * Advancing Informal STEM Learning: 9/15/17, 8am

For more information on these programs and on the internal competitions, 
see the message and links below.
