The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is releasing a Draft Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) soliciting team-based proposals for SMD science education for community review and comment. It is anticipated that proposals will be due Spring 2015.


The goal of the NASA SMD Science Education CAN is to meet the following NASA SMD Science Education Objectives: Enabling STEM education, improving U.S. science literacy; advancing National education goals; and leveraging science education through partnerships. NASA intends to select one or more focused, science discipline-based team(s). While it is envisioned that multiple agreements may be awarded, selection of a single award to support all of SMD science education requirements is not precluded. Awards are anticipated by September 30, 2015.


Neither the issuance of this Announcement nor the draft CAN obligates NASA to issue the final CAN and solicit proposals. Issuance of the CAN is dependent on programmatic factors, including NASA receiving an appropriation and operating plan containing adequate funding within the NASA Science Mission Directorate budget. Any costs incurred by prospective submitters in response to this Announcement or the draft CAN are incurred completely at the submitter's own risk. The final CAN may contain provisions that differ from the draft CAN, in which case those provisions in the final CAN would take precedence.


All comments and questions should be directed only to by the due date above. Comments are to be submitted by E-mail using the character string "Science Education CAN" (without quotes) included in the subject line of all transmissions. The identity of those submitting comments will be held in confidence. Answers to questions about this Announcement and draft CAN will be made available on the website at
