Funding Opportunity: STEM Education & Workforce (ONR)

 

Opportunity Title: Office of Naval Research (ONR) Navy and Marine Corps Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), Education and Workforce Program

Sponsor: Office of Naval Research

Sponsor Number: N00014-18-S-F003

Deadline Dates: 31-Jul-2018 [LOI/Pre-App], 28-Sep-2018

Program URL : https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=298739

 

Synopsis: The ONR seeks a broad range of applications for augmenting existing or developing innovative solutions that directly maintain, or cultivate a diverse, world-class STEM workforce in order to maintain the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps’ technological superiority. The goal of any proposed effort must provide solutions that will establish and maintain pathways of diverse U.S. citizens who are interested in uniformed or civilian DoN (or Navy and Marine Corps) STEM workforce opportunities.

 

As the capacity of the DoN Science and Technology (S&T) workforce is  interconnected with the basic research enterprise and STEM education system, ONR recognizes the need to support efforts that can jointly improve STEM student outcomes and align educational efforts with Naval S&T current and future workforce needs. This announcement explicitly encourages projects that improve the capacity of education systems and communities to create impactful STEM educational experiences for students and workers.  Submissions are encouraged to consider including active learning approaches and incorporating 21st century skill development. Projects must aim to increase student and worker engagement  in STEM and enhance people with needed Naval STEM capabilities. ONR encourages applications to utilize current STEM educational research for  informing project design and advancing our understanding of how and why  people choose STEM careers and opportunities of naval relevance.
