Participant Requirements


Building on the team member requirements in the S-STEM solicitation, participants will apply to and participate in the workshop two-member teams – principal investigators (PIs) and researchers.  PIs who have had prior S-STEM submissions recommended for decline are especially encouraged to apply.

PI participants must be faculty members from two-year or four-year institutions currently teaching in one of the eligible S-STEM disciplines:

  • biological sciences (except medicine and other clinical fields);
  • physical sciences, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and materials science;
  • mathematical sciences;
  • computer and information sciences;
  • geosciences;
  • engineering; or
  • technology areas associated with the preceding fields (e.g., biotechnology, chemical technology, engineering technology, information technology).

Researcher participants must have expertise in educational, social/behavioral, discipline-based educational, or institutional research.

For participants who do not have a researcher team member, workshop organizers will help PIs initiate a partnership.  There will be a place to note this need during Step 1 of the
application process.  Workshop facilitators will provide access to a researcher database containing contact information and expertise of researchers who are available to and interested in both participating in the workshop and partnering on an S-STEM proposal submission.  It will be the PI’s responsibility to contact researchers to discuss interests and participation prior to completing Step 2 of the application process.
