The National Science Foundation's Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) will support research by cohorts of middle school teachers, high school teachers and/or community college faculty. Proposals are due August 2, 2021.
- increasing participation of underrepresented groups in biological research supported by one or more BIO Divisions;
- enriching teachers’ research experiences for translation to teaching practices;
- inspiring diverse students to consider higher education and careers in STEM.
Research Experiences for Teachers Sites (RETS) will be based at institutions of higher learning or other non-profit organizations that conduct educational and research activities.
