Applications are now being accepted for the second cohort of the STEM Gateway Teaching Fellows Program. The 2-year fellowship program is open to all tenure stream faculty, fixed term faculty, and academic specialists who are committed to excellence in teaching in the STEM gateway courses. The fellowship is part of MSU’s Association of American Universities (AAU) STEM Education Initiative project titled “Creating a Coherent Gateway for STEM Teaching and Learning at MSU.” The Fellowship is supported by funds from the Office of the Provost, the College of Natural Science, and Lyman Briggs College. Each Fellow will receive $8,000 (spread over two years) to support his or her participation in the program.
The Institute offers innovation grants to Michigan State University (MSU) faculty in the colleges of Education, Natural Science, Engineering and/or Lyman-Briggs to pursue initial work in an area of STEM education research that has strong potential to receive external funding. Proposed projects should have already been submitted and reviewed by an external funder within the last 12 months. The external proposal must have received reviews that suggest the likelihood of funding on resubmission if supported by an LPF-CMP Grant.
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: CREATE for STEM New Innovation Seed Grants
Purpose: The Institute offers innovation seed grants to Michigan State University (MSU) faculty in the colleges of Education, Natural Science, Engineering and/or Lyman-Briggs to pursue initial collaborative efforts and pilot studies that will lead to the development of a new proposals for significant external funding. Proposed projects should be new collaborations or innovation and research efforts that have not previously been submitted for funding.
The College of Education, College of Natural Science, College of Engineering, and the Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University seek a Tenure system faculty scholar at the associate or full professor level in STEM education. This position is part of an ongoing priority initiative in STEM education at MSU and, more broadly, the Global Impact Initiative to recruit leading scholars to the university.
