STEM) Program

 Colleagues:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is soliciting proposals for the
Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) program.

*Limit:* UC Berkeley may submit only *one *proposal as the lead
organization.

Summary: The Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM program funds research
to identify efficacious factors in the formation of ethical STEM
researchers at all levels, including students, postdoctoral fellows, and
faculty, employing a variety of means beyond conventional classroom
instruction. This program is distinguished from its predecessor, the Ethics
Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program, which focused on
graduate education.

CCE STEM projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what
constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific
practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill students with
this knowledge. Projects may explore the elements that constitute effective
ethical STEM research and practice, cultural and institutional contexts
that promote ethical STEM research and practice, specific practices that
contribute to the establishment and maintenance of ethical cultures, and
how such practices can be transferred, extended to, and integrated into
other research and learning settings. Proposals should include a
comparative dimension, either between or within institutional settings that
differ along these or other factors.

*Duration and Budget:* CCE STEM awards may be up to 5 years in duration.
The program expects to fund approximately 6 to 8 standard grants for an
annual total of $3,050,000.
