Next Round of NSF EDU Core Research Grants: STEM Education Research (ECR: BCSER) Due Feb 23 2024

Opportunity Title:

EDU Core Research: Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (ECR: BCSER)



Opportunity Number:

NSF 22-548


ECR’s Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (ECR: BCSER) supports projects that build investigators’ capacity to carry out high-quality STEM education research that will enhance the nation’s STEM education enterprise. In addition, ECR: BCSER seeks to broaden the pool of researchers who can advance knowledge regarding STEM learning and learning environments, broadening participation in STEM fields, and STEM workforce development. Researchers of races and ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and abilities who are currently underrepresented in their participation in STEM education research and the STEM workforce, as well as faculty at minority-serving and two-year institutions, are particularly encouraged to submit proposals.

Specifically, ECR: BCSER supports activities that enable researchers to expand their areas of expertise and acquire the requisite knowledge and skills to conduct rigorous research in STEM education. Career development may be accomplished through investigator-initiated professional development and research projects or through institutes that enable researchers to integrate methodological strategies with theoretical and practical issues in STEM education.


NSF welcomes proposals on behalf of all qualified scientists, engineers, and educators.

Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), nonprofits, Tribal governments are eligible applicants. For-profits, government organizations, and foreign organizations may be eligible for funding.
