The NSF HSI Resource Hub is a partnership between New Mexico State University, Dona Ana Community College, and California State University-Northridge. The Hub’s goal is to support the needs of HSIs, especially those with little or no prior NSF funding, by providing assistance with grantsmanship and fostering institutional capacity required to support STEM education and research.

Workshop Description: The workshop content will focus on preparing grants for the new NSF HSI Initiative that seeks to increase grant support for STEM Education in HSIs (due September 18, 2019). During the event, participants will have a rare opportunity to seek advice from successful grant applicants, to direct questions to experienced and knowledgeable grant awardees, and to closely analyze a sample proposal to learn which pitfalls to avoid.

Intended Audience: The workshop is open to anyone interested in applying for the NSF HSI Initiative call NSF 19-540. Preference is applicants who are (1) from 2-year and 4-year HSI with limited prior NSF support (2) faculty within their first 10 years of academic appointment, and (3) those who seek to collaborate on applications with these institutions.

Cost: Accepted applicants will be eligible to apply for stipends to offset the cost of attendance. Fees vary based on area-specific workshop venues.

Application: Prepare to submit your application using this document. It is recommended to upload a letter of institutional support with your application. The finalized application should be submitted at this link:

Travel and Accommodations: You are responsible for arranging and paying for your own travel and accommodations. For some workshops, a limited number of rooms for a special price have been arranged. Please see details on specific workshop pages.
