The NSF Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) program considers proposals for research and educational projects to improve ethics education in all of the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. Ethics issues arise in the practice of science and engineering as well as in the complex relationships among science, engineering, technology and society. To address this variety of issues and constituencies, educational practice needs to draw from relevant research, including work in practical and professional ethics and theory of action, pedagogical theory, and appropriate theory from social and behavioral sciences. For this year, proposals must focus on improving ethics education for graduate students in those fields, and on ethical issues that arise in research or graduate research education in those fields, particularly in interdisciplinary or inter-institutional contexts. EESE will consider proposals for research projects, education projects, and combinations of the two.

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 20, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) whether the project activities will include research, education, or a combination of the two; 2) a summary of the goals and methods of the project; 3) a listing of anticipated key personnel, and 4) a brief summary of dissemination plans.
