ITEST Proposal Development


Are you considering submitting a proposal to ITEST? You have come to the right place!
The resources under each heading below provide valuable information to help you develop a competitive proposal. Click the plus sign to expand each section and view the ITEST webinars, databriefs, reports and publications. 

We suggest you also peruse the other areas of the STELAR website to learn more about your specific area of interest. We encourage you to browse the project profiles to see what projects have already been funded; read ITEST Program Findings to discover what the previously funded ITEST projects have learned from their research and implementation efforts; and search within resources to find instruments and curricular materials used and developed by ITEST projects.

In addition to the resources below, STELAR is pleased to offer our ITEST Proposal Development Course, a self-paced, free, and open to the public, online course in which novice NSF proposal writers will develop a full NSF proposal for the ITEST program. The course covers the critical components of developing a successful NSF ITEST proposal including; forming partnerships, writing a compelling narrative, developing research and evaluation designs that are well-aligned and impactful, planning for fruitful dissemination, preparing a budget, and finally, submitting the proposal to NSF.
