Program Announcements

The ESIE Program Solicitation and Guidelines are the best source of information for all our programs. You can download the Guidelines (NSF 01-60) from the Publications section of NSF's website, or request a hardcopy by sending an e-mail to paperpubs@nsf.gov.

Instructional Materials Development

IMD supports development of comprehensive curricula and supplementary materials that change classroom instruction. All IMD-supported materials must be aligned with standards for content, instruction, and assessment developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Research Council (NRC). IMD also supports the development of embedded and large-scale student assessments that align with standards, as well as implementation and dissemination projects that provide information and technical assistance to decision-makers responsible for selecting and implementing curricula. To get more information on this program, view the IMD Section of the ESIE Program Solicitation and Guidelines, or write to ESIE.

Informal Science Education

ISE activities provide rich and stimulating opportunities outside formal school settings, where individuals of all ages, interests, and backgrounds increase their appreciation and understanding of science, mathematics, and technology. ISE emphasizes collaborations between informal and formal education communities, increased access for individuals from underrepresented groups, and increased involvement of parents in their children's education. To get more information on this program, view the ISE section of the ESIE Program Solicitation and Guidelines, or write to ESIE.

Teacher Enhancement

TE projects provide professional development opportunities to broaden and deepen the disciplinary and pedagogical knowledge of teachers, improving their ability to provide rich and challenging education in science, mathematics, and technology. Approximately 50% of the program's resources are invested in Local Systemic Change (LSC) projects that implement sustainable reform in entire school systems. TE also supports projects to develop educational leadership, professional materials for teachers, and technology efforts that build communities of learners. To get more information on this program, view the TE section of the ESIE Program Solicitation and Guidelines, or write to ESIE.

Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching

The PAEMST program rewards career excellence for teachers at both elementary and secondary grade levels from each state and four U.S. jurisdictions. NSF administers the PAEMST program on behalf of the White House. To get more information on this program, please visit the Presidential Awards website or write to ESIE.
