The EHR Core Research (ECR) program of fundamental research in STEM education provides funding in critical research areas that are essential, broad and enduring. EHR seeks proposals that will help synthesize, build and/or expand research foundations in the following focal areas: STEM learning, STEM learning environments, STEM workforce development, and broadening participation in STEM. More information on the program can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=504924&org=EHR. Note, the ECR program replaces the previous REESE and REAL programs.
Mathematics teachers are a key part of the STEM workforce and ECR entertains proposals on the development of mathematics teachers, as well as understanding STEM learning and learning environments that support mathematics teachers. The next proposal due date is September 10, 2015.
