Under the new program, qualifying institutions will work with the NIST Standards Services Curricula Development Cooperative Agreement Program. Participants will design curricula form undergraduate and graduate courses that effectively introduce students to standardization. Project results will be shared both with members of the curriculum development community, including educators, as well as with the general public.
The selection of grant recipients is expected to be completed by April 2013. However, the start date for the awards will be no earlier than July 1, 2013.
