National Science Foundation Grant
Date: Fri, September 4, 2020 12:00 AM
National Science Foundation Grant Grayson College has been awarded a second round National Science Foundation-Advanced Technological Education grant in the amount of $431,905 to continue strengthening its Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) within our local ISD partners. The monies will be dedicated to hiring a second full-time AMP faculty member, enhancing AMP presence on the College's website, creating a strong mentor/mentee program and purchasing equipment. The grant runs from October 2020 through September 2023.
The Advanced Manufacturing Program was established in 2016 to assist high school students with preparing for a manufacturing career. Organizations involved in the program include 30 employers under the Texoma Advanced Manufacturing Consortium, the Sherman Economic Development Corp., the Denison Development Alliance, Workforce Solutions Texoma, Grayson College and multiple high schools.
With an emphasis on two-year Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), the Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions (grades 7-12, IHEs) and industry to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary institution school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development; professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers; career pathways; and other activities. The program invites research proposals that advance the knowledge base related to technician education. It is expected that projects will be faculty driven and that courses and programs credit bearing, although materials developed may also be used for incumbent worker education.
