The NSF CISE Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education (CPATH) program challenges applicants to transform undergraduate computing education on a national scale, to meet the challenges and opportunities of a world where computing is essential to U.S. leadership, health, security and prosperity in the 21st century. This workforce includes a cadre of professionals with the computing depth and breadth needed for sustained leadership in a wide range of application domains and career fields, and a broader professional workforce with deep knowledge and understanding of critical computing concepts, computational thinking methodologies and techniques.

Successful CPATH projects will be systemic in nature and will demonstrate significant potential to contribute to the transformation and revitalization of undergraduate computing education on a national scale. CPATH will support three types of projects in two major tracks: Community Building and Institutional Transformation. In the Community Building Track, Community Building (CB) Grants are available. In the Institutional Transformation Track, Conceptual Development and Planning (CDP) Grants and Transformative Implementation (TI) Grants are available.

Because MU is limited to one TI and one CDP proposal for this program (there is no organizational limit for CB proposals), letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, January 25, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to a total of 3 pages and should include 1) the type of proposal; 2) any partner organizations; 3) anticipated organizational models and programmatic pathways for undergraduate computing education; 4) plans for serving as a national model and/or extending models to additional institutions; and 5) plans for project evaluation.


10 to 15 CDP projects will be funded at levels of $50,000 up to a maximum of $150,000 total for durations of up to two years.

2 to 5 TI projects will be funded at levels up to $1,000,000 total for a maximum duration of three years.
