Program Description: The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program is a major research and development effort that supports innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. MSP projects are expected to raise the achievement levels of all students and significantly reduce achievement gaps in the mathematics and science performance of diverse student populations. In order to improve the mathematics and science achievement of the Nation's students, MSP projects contribute to what is known in mathematics and science education and serve as models that have a sufficiently strong evidence/research base to improve the mathematics and science education outcomes for all students. NSF's MSP program coordinates its effort with theMathematics and Science Partnerships program of the U.S. Department of Education in the expectation that effective innovations in mathematics and science education will be disseminated into wider practice. The two programs are significant components of the America COMPETES Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-69).
Through this solicitation, NSF seeks to support five types of MSP awards plus EHR-wide projects:
Please see the solicitation for complete information.
The Principle Investigator of a proposal for any of the Partnership categories – Targeted, Institute, MSP-Start or Phase II – must be a mathematician, scientist of engineering and a regular faculty member in mathematics, science or engineering department in a higher education core partner. One or more co-Principle Investigators must be representative(s) from the K-12 core partner organization(s).
|Number of Nominees Allowed||
