NSF ITEST Program Online Workshop for Kentucky & West Virginia


On Tuesday, June 4, STELAR and NSF Program Officers representing Kentucky (Dr. Joan Walker) and West Virginia (Dr. Melissa Luna) held an interactive workshop designed to invite proposals to the NSF ITEST program's 2024 solicitation (due August 9). This workshop is one in a series of outreach efforts intended to raise awareness and support those new to the ITEST program, specifically those located within EPSCoR Jurisdictions.  

The June 4 online workshop was designed for education researchers, formal and informal educators, interested collaborators, and institutions including universities, museums, community colleges, school districts, community organizations and non-profits located in either Kentucky or West Virginia. It is intended for those new to NSF proposal writing, and will provide important information including:

  • the goals and priorities of the ITEST program
  • examples of projects that have been funded by ITEST
  • a review of proposal development resources

During the event attendees had the opportunity to engage with colleagues for networking, discussion, and activities designed to illustrate elements of a competitive ITEST proposal. Time was provided to ask questions and discuss concepts directly with NSF program officers. The workshop featured examples from funded projects and proposal development resources. 

Prior to the event, attendees watched this introduction to the ITEST program.
