National Science Foundation
Grant Title: Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=316133
Details: ITEST is an applied research and development (R&D) program providing direct student learning opportunities in pre-kindergarten through high school. The learning opportunities are based on innovative use of technology to strengthen knowledge and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and information and communication technology (ICT) careers. To achieve this purpose, ITEST supports projects that engage students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase awareness and interest of STEM and ICT occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to those occupations; and (3) develop STEM-specific disciplinary content knowledge and practices that promote critical thinking, reasoning, and communication skills needed for entering the STEM and ICT workforce of the future.
Department of Labor
Grant Title: Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities (WORC): A Grant Initiative for the Appalachian and Delta Regions
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=315986
Details: These grants will enable eligible applicants within the Appalachian and Delta regions to expand the impact of existing workforce development initiatives, as well as provide valuable career, training, and support services to eligible individuals in counties and parishes and/or areas currently underserved by other resources. These grants support workforce development activities that prepare dislocated workers, new entrants to the workforce, and incumbent workers for good jobs in high-demand occupations aligned with a regional or community economic development strategy.
National Archives and Records Administration
Grant Title: Public Engagement with Historical Records
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=316023
Details: The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks projects that encourage public engagement with historical records, including the development of new tools that enable people to engage online. The NHPRC is looking for projects that create models and technologies that other institutions can freely adopt. Collaborations between archivists, documentary editors, historians, educators, and/or community-based individuals are more likely to create a competitive proposal.
