The NIST SSCD Cooperative Agreement Program provides financial assistance to support curriculum development for the undergraduate and/or graduate level. These cooperative agreements support the integration of standards and standardization information and content into seminars, courses, and learning resources. The recipients will work with NIST to strengthen education and learning about standards and standardization.
Funds can be used for the design, testing, and evaluation of specific innovations in teaching methods, curricula, course content and materials, courses or course modules, class assignments, and/or student projects. Funds can also help cover the cost of students who assist instructors in revising a course or course module, travel and related expenses for guest lecturers, or other costs entailed with the integration of standards and standardization into the academic studies program. Standards
curriculum activities in any area that supports science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and/or other related disciplines such as law, public policy, business, and/or multi-disciplinary approaches will be considered. Activities involving the evaluation of the viability, necessity, or usefulness of a project are not within the scope of the NIST SSCD Cooperative Agreement Program and will not be funded.
