If we look life 100 years ago, and compare that with the today’s life, we will notice that Science has dramatically changed human life. The mission of the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology is to provide an outstanding, student-centered environment in which expert faculty empower students with knowledge and skills from science, mathematical and health-related disciplines.
Describe the multidisciplinary or disciplinary research focus, goals for education and broadening participation, the integrative nature of the Center, and the knowledge transfer strategy of the Center. STC partner organizations work together with the lead institution as an integrated whole to achieve the shared research, education, broadening participation, and knowledge-transfer goals of the Center.
Preliminary proposals and invited full proposals may only be submitted by domestic (United States) institutions of higher education that are located in the United States, its territories or possessions, and have doctoral degree-granting research and education programs in any area of research supported by NSF.
We will be more than happy to provide you with full details about our school, programs and other activities. Provide current and pending support information for the PI and co-PIs only, i.e., only those persons listed on the Cover Sheet of the proposal. RAND experts have often been among the pioneers of key scientific research, including computer analysis, satellite development, military technology, and the foundations of the Internet.
