Description:       The National Science Foundation invites proposals for research, conferences, and studies to evaluate existing data from multiple sources and develop statistical methods and indicators to improve the development, quality, and understanding of the science and technology enterprise in the United States and other nations. A variety of topics related to the collection, acquisition, analysis, reporting, and dissemination of objective statistical data are eligible for consideration. Proposals are accepted for standard research grants and doctoral dissertation research improvement grants. Among program goals are to educate and train researchers in the use of large-scale nationally representative data sets; inform education and workforce policy in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; and defray direct costs associated with doctoral dissertation research.

Education related topics include, but are not limited to, the following examples:

• Education and retention of scientists and engineers, including minorities, women, and persons with disabilities.

• Demand, supply, career pathways, and characteristics of science and engineering personnel, including those without bachelor’s degrees.

• Indicators of the globalization of science, engineering, and technology. Issues related to international education and mobility of scientists and engineers.
