NH EPSCoR and Campus Compact for NH have established a seed grant program for faculty at undergraduate institutions of higher education (2-year and primarily undergraduate institutions) to broaden participation and build research capacity in the STEM disciplines. Faculty at two-year and four-year colleges may apply for a seed grant of up to $5,000 to prepare to submit a proposal for funding, which may include exploring a concept, or integrating research experiences into an undergraduate STEM curriculum.
These mini-grants are aligned with the Enhancing Inclusive Excellence for NH Communities Initiative designed to create resources and models for Inclusive Excellence to expand outreach efforts leading to broadening community participation. Activities funded will further enhance NH’s capacity to develop a talented, robust, and diverse STEM oriented work force capable of performing, adapting and thriving in a dynamic knowledge driven economy.
Priorities of the mini grant program include:
· The integration of experiential learning/community engagement in the STEM academic program, with priority given to environmental sciences.
We are particularly interested in funding new programs and initiatives, or the enhancement or expansion of existing partnerships. Priority will be given to programs that intentionally broaden participation of underrepresented groups in STEM initiatives through innovative and replicable strategies.
Use of funds:
· Curriculum revision materials
Funds must be expended by June 30, 2013
RFP Timeline: Applications are due by October 29th and awards are expected by November 13th. Mini grant recipients must attend the EPSCoR Meeting on November 8, 2012

Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the spring of 2013 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) will host its 17th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This event will help members of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.
CUR is calling for students to submit an abstract of their research that represents any of CUR’s disciplinary divisions (Arts and Humanities, Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Health Sciences, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/Astronomy, Psychology, and Social Sciences). In order to ensure proper review of applications, the above are the only disciplines that may apply. Should your research be inter-disciplinary, or in a subject not listed above, please select the division that most closely describes your research, if applicable.
Abstract submissions will only be accepted by using our on-line submission form. Prior to submitting the form, students should gather the contact information for all co-authors, advisors and sponsors (if applicable), prepare a short vitae/resume, and poster abstract. A document listing the information required for submission can be found by visiting: Posters on the Hill – Information for Submission
For more information, and the link to submit an application, please visit: Posters on the Hill Call for Abstracts. Please note that CUR membership is required to submit an application. Either the student’s home institution must have an institutional membership, or a faculty mentor or undergraduate research coordinator appearing on the submission must have an individual membership. We will not review incomplete applications or applications that do not satisfy the membership requirement.
Please be sure that both portions (the electronic application and the electronic recommendation letter) are submitted by November 1, 2012. Please encourage your students to submit. This is a highly competitive program, which makes for a very exciting experience for the students and their faculty advisors alike.
