Two New NSF Competitions Announced Conrad Katzenmeyer 21 May 1998 11:02 EST
The National Science Foundation is soliciting
evaluative/impact studies of our Systemic Initiatives
through what is termed a Dear Colleague Letter - a means
that NSF uses to reach the field quickly. These two Dear
Colleague Letter will not be distributed by mail but are
available through NSF's Website. Eligibility to compete is
broad: education institutions, non-profits, profits, even
individuals under some conditions are all eligible. The
closing date for submission of proposals is July 1, 1998.
The URLs for the two Dear Colleague Letters are:
http:/www.ehr.nsf.gov/EHR/REC/Pubs/SSI-Impact.htm for the
Statewide Systemic Initiatives competition.
http:/www.ehr.nsf.gov/EHR/REC/Pubs/USI-RSI-Eval.htm for the
Urban and Rural Systemic Initiatives competition.
NSF intends to make multiple awards under each competition.
NSF will also be issuing a third Dear Colleague Letter to
solicit research studies on the Systemic Initiatives. This
announcement will also be available only on the NSF Website.
It is expected that the third Dear Colleague Letter will be
available sometime in June, 1998 proposals due in
