China’s State Oceanic Administration, become controlling, etc.C. and the Center for the Integration of Research Teaching and Learning at the University of Wisconsin in Madison They are pursuing a three-pronged attempt to improve the skills of STEM faculty members at dozens of universities in mentoring minority students grow the ranks of minority STEM faculty and promote diversity throughout academia Another $10 million Alliance award based at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo California will help community college students in California and three other states overcome deficits in math as the first step into a STEM major A fourth $10 million Alliance grant based at the University of Texas in El Paso will support expansion of a 12-year-old computing alliance among academic institutions that serve a large number of Hispanic students The absence of any Alliances focused on precollege or informal science education “was not intentional” James says “These projects rose to the top during our merit review process We’re definitely interested in K-12 and we hope to provide support to that sector in subsequent awards that would complement our first cohort” Matchmaking woes Because K-12 education in the United States is largely a local and state responsibility scientists with pilot grants focused on that population faced a higher bar in trying to build coalitions and attract other partners April Marchetti a chemistry professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland Virginia ran into that challenge in when she tried to recruit partners for an Alliance proposal The pilot project offers a summer STEM program for Hispanic girls starting high school with the goal of bringing them back in subsequent years to provide a glide path for their entry into college and a STEM career Marchetti had already forged ties with STEM-based companies and other employers of STEM workers and she hoped an Alliance grant would strengthen those ties and provide additional student support But like-minded programs were scarce “We couldn’t find a suitable partner in time for the [Alliance] deadline” she says “There are so many populations to be served and so many types of interventions We want to continue to be part of INCLUDES but we don’t want to have to change our focus” Marchetti was able to parlay a chance meeting at one of the NSF conferences into a consultant’s role with a fifth new Alliance Led by Erica Harvey a chemistry professor at Fairmont State College in West Virginia the First2 STEM Success Network will work with students from rural West Virginia many of them the first in their families to attend college The $7 million project hopes to reduce the steep outflow from STEM fields in the first 2 years of college with an array of activities designed to cement a student’s interest in science and engineering by showing its relevance to their lives Harvey was co–principal investigator on a pilot project led by Sue Ann Heatherly senior education officer at the Green Bank Observatory in rural West Virginia The radio telescope built by NSF had long served as a magnet for STEM educators throughout the state seeking research opportunities for their students The pilot provided rising freshmen with a 2-week summer program at one of the two institutions and the Alliance hopes to build out that successful trial The West Virginia Alliance has an unusually diverse group of partners assembled in large part to satisfy an NSF requirement that all projects include an institutional “backbone” to coordinate activities and to work with NSF and the other Alliance programs That capacity and expertise already exists at most major research universities and large nonprofit organizations But it was a significant obstacle for the grassroots operation run by Heatherly and Harvey “I’m a chemistry professor and I have my hands full running the internships along with everything else I do” Harvey says “It had never occurred to us that it’s worth paying for the infrastructure needed to provide that type of continuity and accountability” So Heatherly and Harvey reached out to a state entity the Higher Education Policy Commission The commission was already managing an NSF-funded program the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research to help states with relatively small amounts of federal research funding and was eager to come on board The scientists also enlisted SRI International as a “mentor backbone” to help the commission climb the learning curve Bending the bars However some scientists with pilot grants found the backbone component to be an insurmountable hurdle Jannette Carey a chemistry professor at Princeton University and a few colleagues have been running a science education program in the New Jersey prison system for a dozen years with more than 100 student volunteers She used the pilot dubbed STEPS (Scholarship and Transformative Education in Prisons) to STEM to add additional offerings including a first-ever laboratory course as stepping stones toward a 4-year degree for prisoners after they are released “But as a volunteer organization” she says “we couldn’t meet the requirement for the infrastructure needed to collaborate and communicate with other organizations and institutions” Her own attempts at matchmaking also proved a disappointment “We went to the conferences in hopes of finding partners who had a realistic chance of submitting a credible proposal” Carey says “But none of the other pilots shared our goals of bringing university-level courses into a prison” A last-minute partnership with another pilot grantee that focuses on improving the math skills of underrepresented minorities failed to make the initial cut she says Carey has a good sense of what passes muster at NSF having run an NSF-funded program to provide research experiences for undergraduates (REU) in biophysics for several years And she hasn’t abandoned the idea of gaining additional NSF support for something that occupies a unique niche in the agency’s portfolio of efforts to reach underrepresented populations That hope is embodied in her latest proposal She’s asking that her next REU grant allow her to work with students in all fields that NSF supports not just in the physics mathematics engineering and computer science programs that relate to biophysics It’s an essential step in meeting the needs of this underserved population she argues “A lot of formerly incarcerated students gravitate toward psychology sociology political science economics and other disciplines in the social sciences” she says “So including them could make an important contribution to growing the STEM workforce”
