Math and Science Partnership (MSP) Program Solicitation


See Also: Information for Prospective PIs of MSP Proposals

The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program is a major research and development effort that supports innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. MSP projects are expected to both raise the achievement levels of all students and significantly reduce achievement gaps in the mathematics and science performance of diverse student populations. Successful projects serve as models that can be widely replicated in educational practice to improve the mathematics and science achievement of all the Nation's students.

In this solicitation, NSF seeks to support two types of MSP projects:

  • Institute Partnerships -- Teacher Institutes for the 21st Century, especially for the science disciplines in the secondary grades and for elementary science specialists; and

  • a focused set of Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance (RETA) projects that directly support the work of the Institutes or engage the national disciplinary and professional societies in MSP work.

Letter of Intent Due: April 14, 2006 (Optional, but strongly encouraged)

Full Proposal Deadline: May 17, 2006 (due by 5 p.m. submitter's local time)
