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 all of the fields of science and engineering, especially in interdisciplinary or inter-institutional contexts. EESE is interested in encouraging innovative education and research projects likely to create long-term improvement in ethics education for graduate students. EESE invites proposals for research projects, education projects, and combinations of the two. It encourages applicants who are thinking creatively about ethics education, going well beyond standard approaches like 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.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, February 15, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed project, including 1) whether the project will entail research and/or education activities, 2) rationale for the proposed activities, 3) anticipated activities, 4) evaluation plans (if applicable), and 5) any anticipated partner organizations.
