Subject: Limited Submission Funding Opportunity: NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science Supplements and Sites
Dear Cathie and Stan,
Below please find this year’s announcement for the NSF Research Experiences for Teachers program. We appreciate your help in forwarding this to eligible faculty who may be interested in applying.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

NSF's Directorate for Engineering (ENG) and the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) have joined to support the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science program. This program supports active long-term collaborative partnerships between K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering, Computer and Information Science, and Mathematics (STEM) in-service and pre-service teachers, full-time community college faculty, and university faculty and students to enhance the scientific disciplinary knowledge and capacity of the STEM teachers and/or community college faculty through participation in authentic summer research experiences with engineering and computer science faculty researchers. The research projects and experiences all revolve around a focused research area related to engineering and/or computer science that will provide a common cohort experience to the participating educators. The K-12 STEM teachers and/or full-time community college faculty also translate their research experiences and new scientific knowledge into their classroom activities and curricula. The university team will include faculty, graduate and undergraduate students as well as industrial advisors. Involvement of graduate students in support of academic-year classroom activities is particularly encouraged. Partnerships with inner city, rural or other high needs schools are especially encouraged, as is participation by underrepresented minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities.

As part of the long-term partnership arrangements, university undergraduate/graduate students will partner with pre-college/community college faculty in their classrooms during the academic year to support the integration of the RET curricular materials into classroom activities.

There are two mechanisms for support under this program:

  *   RET supplements to ongoing ENG and CISE awards;
  *   New RET Site awards.

The maximum total request for a Site is $600,000 for a duration of up to three years. Supplements are limited to a maximum of $10,000 per teacher and/or community college faculty for a duration of one year.


  *   The principal investigator of an RET in Engineering and Computer Science Site proposal must have a full-time, tenured, or tenure-track faculty appointment within a College/Department of Engineering or Engineering Technology or a College/Department of Computer and/or Information Science within the submitting U.S. academic institution.
  *   The PI must be a full-time Engineering and/or Computer Science faculty member whose primary job responsibilities are research and teaching and not a faculty member who is involved in an administrative capacity such as a dean or outreach coordinator.
  *   An individual may serve as PI on no more than one RET Site proposal.

Three Site proposals may be submitted per competition by a U.S. academic institution, including a College/Department of Engineering, Engineering Technology, or Computer and/or Information Science as the lead institution. No more than two of the three proposals may have an engineering focus and only one of the three proposals may have a computer and/or information science focus.

Please note that because Boston University already has one RET Site with an engineering focus, only one more proposal with an engineering focus will be selected to proceed with the application. One proposal with a computer and/or information science focus will be selected to proceed with the application.

Interested investigators should submit the following materials via InfoReady Review<https://bu.infoready4.com> by Tuesday, September 5, 2017:

  *   Questions outlined in InfoReady Review application;
  *   Letter of recommendation from the appropriate Department Chair or a senior researcher;
  *   A brief (one-page) statement by the candidate describing his or her significant scientific work and immediate research plans;
  *   Up-to-date CV.

A faculty committee will review internal proposals and select the nominees.

Internal Materials Due: Tuesday, September 5, 2017
Sponsor Deadline: Tuesday, October 10, 2017

In requesting to be considered by the Vice President and Associate Provost for Research for this limited submission funding opportunity, you are making a commitment, if selected, to submit your proposal to the sponsor in a timely manner and to Sponsored Programs in accordance with the Proposal Submission Policy<https://www.bu.edu/researchsupport/forms-policies/proposal-submission-policy/>.
