Project iPics: Innovative Projects in Computational Science. Funded through NSF Award #1356235. Award Period July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2018.
Beginning in Fall 2014, the project is funding scholarships for computer science and mathematics students. Students are organized into learning communities and engage in research focused on a common theme of computational science. See more information at https://ipics.pages.tcnj.edu/.

Project FIRSTS: Foundation for Increasing and Retaining STEM Students Program. Funded through NSF Award #1525109. Award Period January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018.
The overall goals of this program are to help students from underserved populations transition to the rigors of the STEM curriculum and gather both qualitative and quantitative data on the reasons financially needy students elect to leave STEM disciplines.

Project CABECT: Collaborating Across Boundaries to Engage undergraduates in Computational Thinking. Funded through NSF Award #1141170. Award period August 15, 2012 to July 31, 2017.
See more information on the CABECT page.
