NSF HSI STEM Hub: Opportunities with S-STEM and the Two Year College Program

Program Officers from the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) will describe opportunities in the Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program (S-STEM) and the Advancing Innovation and Impact in Undergraduate STEM Education at Two-Year Institutions of Higher Education Program Description. The S-STEM program has a solicitation to guide proposal submission. The Program Description, however, is more of an open call for submissions that will benefit undergraduate STEM education at community colleges.
