Fostering Interdisciplinary Research on Education: FIRE is a strand of the Research and Evaluation on Education in Science and Engineering (REESE) program (NSF 10-586) and it is anticipated that FIRE will eventually be incorporated into the REESE solicitation. The FIRE program seeks to facilitate the process by which scholars can cross disciplinary boundaries to acquire the skills and knowledge that would improve their abilities to conduct rigorous research on STEM learning and education. The primary goal of the strand is to facilitate the development of innovative theoretical, methodological, and analytic approaches to understanding complex STEM education issues of national importance and, by so doing, make progress toward solving them. A secondary goal of the strand is to broaden and deepen the pool of investigators engaged in STEM educational research. In order to address this goal, investigators must pair with a mentoring scholar in??a to-be-learned field of interest. Proposals therefore have both a research and a professional development component. Investigators may receive a FIRE award at any point in their post-graduate careers.

Additional Information on Eligibility
*PI Limit:Each proposal must consist of one individual who will serve as the mentor and one individual who will be mentored. FIRE is open as to whether the mentor is designated as the PI and the mentee as the co-PI, or vice versa, as allowed by their institutions. Other personnel and co-PIs are allowed, but the role of the mentor should be clearly described. Investigators may receive an award at any point in their post-graduate careers, whether at a more junior (e.g., immediately after earning a doctorate) or senior level (e.g., mid-career or later). Both the individual who will act as mentor and the individual who will be mentored must have obtained their respective doctoral degrees by date of award.
