NSF Issues RFI on Undergraduate Training in Biology, Mathematics, and Computer Science
The National Science Foundation has reached out to us for input on the value and need for an interdisciplinary training program for undergraduate students at the intersection of biology, mathematics, and computer science. You can read the full Request for Information here.
They will be accepting comments until December 31, 2021 but hope that BioQUEST/QUBES community members might respond with thoughts sooner than that. The RFI describes NSF’s interest in developing a new program and a request for stakeholder input on some specific questions.
Please feel free to reach out to Mary Crowe (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions. You are also invited to share this information with others who might have interest or insights related to undergraduate education at the interface of biological sciences, mathematics, and computer science.
Thank you for any input and/or help spreading the word,
The BioQUEST Team
