    The NSF QRM Scholars Program is an NSF-funded project aimed at building capacity in STEM Education research. The program admits 20 new Scholars each year and provides quantitative research training, workshops, mentorship, and opportunities for Scholars to share their work with a broader audience. Following a week-long Summer Institute, Scholars will receive mentorship and training throughout the year, which they may complete while at their home institution.

    To be eligible for the NSF QRM Scholars Program, you must:

    • Be pre-tenure faculty or a postdoctoral fellow at a U.S. academic institution;
    • Maintain your pre-tenure status throughout the entire 2020-2021 academic year;
    • Have a research focus related to issues of access and equity of underrepresented populations in STEM within either PK-12 or postsecondary settings.

    The NSF QRM Scholars Program is intended to be diverse, and we encourage submissions from applicants who identify with traditionally underrepresented groups or backgrounds.


    If you are accepted and choose to join the NSF QRM Scholars Program, you will be required to engage in the following Program activities:

    • Attend the week-long Summer Institute on-site at the University of Maryland, College Park (Aug. 16-21, 2020);
    • Present your Scholar project at the 1-day Capstone Conference on-site at the University of Maryland, College Park (Aug. 2021, date TBD);
    • Participate in 8 online live-stream workshops throughout the year (dates TBD; workshops range from 1-3 days);
    • Attend online monthly check-in calls with your Program team, including your Content Area Mentor, Quantitative Mentor, and Graduate Student Liaison (dates TBD);
    • Participate in ongoing peer discussions via the moderated online social media group;
    • Dedicate sufficient “on-your-own” time to make satisfactory progress on your identified Scholar project throughout the year; and,
    • Upon successful completion of the Program, Serve as a mentor for Incoming Scholars during the 2021-22 Program year.

    Please see our FAQ for any additional details regarding the above activities.
