Limited Submission Announcement

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program supports research and educational projects to improve ethics education for graduate students in science and engineering, with priority given to interdisciplinary, inter-institutional, and international contexts. EESE is interested in encouraging innovative education and research projects likely to create long-term improvement in ethics education for graduate students. EESE encourages applicants who are thinking creatively about ethics education, going well beyond standard approaches such as developing online modules, providing students with a series of scenarios and having a discussion about them, or holding workshops and seminars with invited speakers, and then asking students to rate the activities on a survey form.
