Connect with IGE

To apply and for a new U.S. National Science Foundation Innovations in Graduate Education Program grant at your research organization, view the latest solicitation on the NSF website.

Applications for the NSF Innovations in Graduate Education Program are accepted annually in March. Interested institutions and researchers can find more information for applying.

Leadership teams (PI/Co-PIs) for all IGE proposals are encouraged to include experts in education research, the learning sciences and/or evaluation, as appropriate, as well as in the principal science domain(s) as needed to design and implement a robust and appropriate research plan.

IGE welcomes proposals from early-career investigators and complements the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program’s mission and focus. For information about the CAREER program, please refer to the Dear Colleague Letter: However, researchers at all stages of their careers including mid-career faculty and investigators from non-academic organizations are welcome to apply.

IGE especially welcomes proposals that reflect collaborations between IGE proposals and existing NSF INCLUDES projects, provided the collaboration will strengthen both projects. Researchers at minority serving institutions and emerging research institutions are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.

Visit the IGE Hub to explore resources such as best practices, webinars, and upcoming events.
