Broader Impacts Examples

How can I address broader impacts in my proposal?

 

  • Integrate research activities into STEM teaching at all educational levels (e.g., K-12, undergraduate science and non-science majors, and graduate students).
    Resource:
    GK-12
  • Involve a teacher in research.
    Resource:
    RET
  • Develop activities that ensure that multi-user facilities are sites of research and mentoring for large numbers of STEM students.
    Resource:
    Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation
  • Establish research and education collaborations with students and faculty from non-Ph.D.-granting institutions and those serving underrepresented groups.
    Resource:
    The Leadership Alliance
  • Give STEM-related presentations to the broader community (e.g., at museums and libraries, on radio shows, and in other such venues).
    Resource:
    Science Center Outreach at Brown
