The Incentive Funds Program in the Research Office is requesting Letters of Intent for the National Science Foundation – Climate Change Education Partnership, Phase I (CCEP-I) program.
Research Office Letter of Intent submission deadline: Wednesday, March 17, 2010
NSF Letter of Intent Deadline(s) (required) (due by 5 p.m. proposer’s local time):

The NSF-CCEP-I program limits to one (1) the number of proposals that can be submitted by Oregon State University as lead organization.
In an effort to provide the highest level of excellence and viability for funding, a review process will be put in place if more than one proposal is submitted. The finalist will be asked to represent Oregon State University and to submit their proposal to the NSF-CCEP-I program.
As part of its broader effort to improve national climate change education, NSF announces a new multi-directorate Climate Change Education Partnership program. The CCEP program seeks to establish a coordinated national network of regionally- or thematically-based Partnerships devoted to increasing the adoption of effective, high quality educational programs and resources related to the science of climate change and its impacts. The program is designed to address fundamental needs related to identifying, developing, implementing, and disseminating effective education strategies that serve the literacy and workforce goals of the CCE program. Partnership activities must reflect current scientific understanding about climate systems and be informed by the learning sciences. To that end, a Partnership must have at least three elements, each represented by at least one appropriate institutional partner. The elements are: expertise in climate science; expertise in the learning sciences; and education practitioners directly engaged in implementation or STEM education policy development. The key expectation is that the Partnership’s activities will be grounded in comparable levels of expertise in climate science and understanding of learning, and will go beyond commonplace methods of dissemination or outreach to provide transformative implementation on a significant scale.

- Title of Project
- List all core participating organizations and primary representatives of those organizations
- List participants who will be providing the three areas of expertise
- Briefly describe the rational for establishing a CCEP Partnership, the major goals and objective of a 2-year Phase I Partnership, and the anticipated outcomes or impact of the Partnership
- Budget being requested
- Letters of Intent are limited to three (3) pages.
- Submit letters of intent electronically as a MS Word or PDF document to: firstname.lastname@example.org
