NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
TRANSFORMING UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING
AND MATHEMATICS (TUES)
DUE: MAY 26 MAY 27 JAN 13
The Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (TUES) program
seeks to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate
students. This solicitation especially encourages projects that have the potential to transform undergraduate
STEM education, for example, by bringing about widespread adoption of classroom practices that embody understanding
of how students learn most effectively. Thus transferability and dissemination are critical aspects for projects developing
instructional materials and methods and should be considered throughout the projectís lifetime. More advanced
projects should involve efforts to facilitate adaptation at other sites. The program supports efforts to create, adapt, and
disseminate new learning materials and teaching strategies to reflect advances both in STEM disciplines and in what is
known about teaching and learning. It funds projects that develop faculty expertise, implement educational innovations,
assess learning and evaluate innovations, prepare K-12 teachers, or conduct research on STEM teaching and
learning. It also supports projects that further the work of the program itself, for example, synthesis and dissemination
of findings across the program. The program supports projects representing different stages of development, ranging
from small, exploratory investigations to large, comprehensive projects.
FUNDING: $35.8 million for 94-108 awards.
