Welcome to ECR Hub

Welcome to ECR Hub

The EDU Core Research (ECR) program at the National Science Foundation (NSF) funds fundamental research on STEM education as well as projects that build individuals’ capacity to conduct such research. The program provides multiple funding opportunities, including a dedicated track for investigators new to STEM education research via the Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (BCSER) solicitation.

The ECR Hub partners with NSF to build, support, and grow communities of current and prospective ECR grantees, especially for scholars and institutions underrepresented in the current ECR portfolio.
