Request Research Help

The Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program funds research and educational projects that improve ethics education in all fields of science and engineering supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Priority consideration is given to interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international contexts. Although the primary focus is on improving ethics education for graduate students in NSF-funded fields, the proposed programs may benefit advanced undergraduates as well.

For this program, the University may submit only one proposal as the lead organization. There is no limit on the number proposals under which the University is included as a non-lead collaborator or sub-awardee.

Faculty at the Medical Center interested in submitting a proposal must send an abstract, CV, and budget to Dean Puzas ( by December 17, 2012, using the words ”Ethics” in the subject line.

Faculty at the River Campus interested in submitting a proposal must send an abstract, CV, and budget to the Deans via Debra Haring ( or Cindy Gary ( The deadline for submissions to the Deans is December 17, 2012.

The Deans will forward their ranked nominations to Associate Provost Jason Adsit by January 3, 2013. A final decision from the Interim Vice President for Research on the nomination that will go forward to NSF will be announced January 10, 2013.

The deadline for the full proposal is March 1, 2013. The complete program announcement can found here.  

It is important to remember that ORPA must receive electronic proposals five (5) business days prior to the sponsor’s deadline, along with a completed and signed University sign-off form.
