Student-Centered Learning

Student-Focused Projects

Student-focused proposals, such as scholarship or fellowship programs, require a significant amount of administrative effort on behalf of the Principal Investigator (PI), including several planning and coordinating meetings with relevant stakeholders such as ASA, FSE Data, Research Services, Financial Aid, and PI’s School Director.

Examples of relevant programs include; NSF S-STEM, NSF NRT, NSF REUs, NASA Fellowships

PIs must meet with ASA prior to proposal submission to review project alignment with solicitation requirements and to discuss overall proposed management of the project, specifically how student applications will be received, reviewed, and awarded as well as student eligibility confirmed throughout the life of the award.

PIs are reminded that sponsor awards are made to the university. As such, university resources such as the assigned Post-Award RA, FSE Dean’s Office, and ASA will provide additional oversight to ensure PI remains compliant with sponsor expectations.
