NSF Climate Change Education (CCE): Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) Program, Phase II (CCEP-II)
To: Chairs, Departments in the Biological, Social and Physical Sciences
From: Heather Daniels, Graduate School
Date: December 27, 2011
Subject: NSF Climate Change Education (CCE): Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) Program, Phase II (CCEP-II)
Nominations are due at the Graduate School on Tuesday, January 10; Deadline for internal competition is TBD.
The Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) program seeks to establish a coordinated national network of regionally- or thematically-based partnerships devoted to increasing the adoption of effective, high quality educational programs and resources related to the science of climate change and its impacts. Each CCEP is required to be of a large enough scale that they will have catalytic or transformative impact that cannot be achieved through other core NSF program awards.
CCEP-II awardees will receive up to 5 years of funding to support full-scale implementation of mature and robust strategic plans already developed by regional or thematic partnerships to improve climate change education activities at a significant scale and meet the goals of the CCE program. Strategic plans must include well-integrated formative and summative evaluation activities conducted by an external evaluator. Prior CCEP-I funding is not an eligibility requirement, but all proposed Phase II Partnerships that did not have CCEP-I funding must demonstrate that they meet the required criteria and have undertaken activities that address the goals and objectives described in the CCEP-I program solicitation.
For Phase II Partnerships, awards are expected to be between $5 million and $6.25 million for five years.
The number of proposals UW–Madison may submit is limited to one as Lead institution.
