Funding Opportunity: NSF Releases Solicitation for Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier Program


by SIOP Administrative Office

On September 21, the National Science Foundation (NSF) published a solicitation for the Cyberlearning for Work at the Human-Technology Frontier program, which aims to advance innovative technologies that facilitate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and re-education for those entering an increasingly technological workforce. 

This solicitation is a revised version of the Cyberlearning and Future Learning Technologies program, and advances the Agency’s Work at the Human-Technology Frontier Big Idea for futured NSF investments. 

This interdisciplinary program integrates education and learning sciences, computer and information science and engineering, and cognitive and behavioral sciences in pursuit of experimental cyberlearning technologies.  The solicitation includes the directorates for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE); Education and Human Resources (EHR); Engineering (ENG); and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE). 

Projects should demonstrate innovations in both technology and learning, and should address the following:

  • “Design and develop future learning environments to educate or re-educate workers for new work environments and experiences in collaboration with advanced technology;
  • Develop relevant formal and informal learning experiences as well as just-in-time training on the job;
  • Support the needs of diverse workers from a broad set of backgrounds and experiences; and
  • Support the future work of teachers in classrooms and other related settings.”

Total Funding and Award Information: NSF anticipates making $15 million available for approximately 20 awards, with individual awards of up to $750,000 over a maximum of three years.  No cost share is required. 

Due Dates: The submission deadline for full proposals is January 8, 2018 and then annually on the second Monday in January.

Eligibility: Individuals may serve as a Principal Investigator (PI) or Co-PI on no more than two proposals.
