The RCN-UBE program supports the formation of networks of educators, researchers, and other stakeholders that improve undergraduate biology.
Among other things, award funds can be used to develop community standards, address interdisciplinary topics, explore collaborative technologies, promote the exchange of information and resources, build community, integrate research and education, and minimize duplication of efforts. The theme of an RCN-UBE proposal can be any topic likely to enhance undergraduate biology education. RCN-UBE awards do not support existing networks or the activities of established collaborations and do not support primary research. The submission deadline for the next competition is 5:00 p.m. local time on 22 January 2019.
Two informational webinars about the program are planned:
• Noon ET, 9 November 2018 (Friday). WebEx link here.
