NSF Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Grants

Thoughts from the CTE Hub Director: While the NSF ATE grants are mainly for community colleges involved in industrial technology education, I believe that there are opportunities for high school teachers to partner with a community college to apply for a grant. These are complex grant proposals and would take a lot of work, but partnering with a high school gives some competitive advantages to the proposal.

With an emphasis on two-year colleges, the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions and employers to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways to two-year colleges from secondary schools and from two-year colleges to four-year institutions; and other activities. A secondary goal is articulation between two-year and four-year programs for K-12 prospective teachers that focus on technological education. The program also invites proposals focusing on applied research relating to technician education.
