The third iteration of the National AI Research Institutes solicitation is now live and includes the continuation of the “AI-Augmented Learning” theme, led by EHR. This year, there is a new partnership with the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) at the Department of Education and the theme has a new focus of AI-Augmented Learning to Expand Education Opportunities and Improve Outcomes. This includes a focus on diverse learners, including those from disadvantaged or underserved communities, to address a grand challenge of “Education for All.”
NSF solicits Institutes in two tracks:
Track A: AI-Driven Digital Platforms to Expand and Accelerate STEM Learning in PreK-12 Settings
Track B: AI-Augmented Learning for Individuals with Disabilities
Preliminary proposal required by January 14, 2022. Full proposals are due May 13, 2022.
