Updated NSF NCSES Program Solicitation

The National Science Foundation’s National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) has released an updated program solicitation, Research on the Science and Technology Enterprise: Statistics and Surveys.

Through this research program, NCSES intends to enhance its efforts in advancing analytic and methodological research in support of its surveys and to engage in the education and training of researchers in the use of large-scale nationally representative data sets. NCSES welcomes efforts by the research community to use NCSES data for research on the science and technology (S&T) enterprise, to develop improved survey methodologies for NCSES surveys, to create and improve indicators of S&T activities and resources, and to strengthen methodologies to analyze and disseminate S&T statistical data. To that end, NCSES invites proposals under this program for individual or multi-investigator research projects, doctoral dissertation improvement awards, workshops, experimental research, survey research, and data collection and dissemination projects.

The full proposal deadline is February 18, 2015. Approximately $750,000 has been allocated, with 7–12 grants expected to be awarded.
