The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program stimulates the interest in K-12 students in health-related careers and improves public awareness and knowledge of NIH-supported research. SEPA programs bring together biomedical and clinical researchers, educators, community groups, and other interested organizations in partnerships to create and disseminate science education programs on basic and clinical research accomplishments to K-12 students and teachers and the general public. Science centers and museums are encouraged to partner with academic and clinical organizations to develop in-house exhibits, public outreach programs and traveling exhibits on medical and clinical research topics.

Proposed SEPA projects must represent new activities in health-related science education. However, coordination, via an independent but complementary project, with existing science education programs, such as those funded by the National Science Foundation, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Energy, Department of Education and others is encouraged. SEPA projects may run three years for Phase I (development and implementation), two years for Phase II (dissemination of an existing project) or five years for a combination of Phases I and II.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, January 6, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should summarize the proposed program and collaborations.
