Computing Education Grants Program for the 21st Century

by:

The National Science Foundation, more commonly referred to as the NSF, is a United States federal government agency that is primarily responsible for pursuing and financially supporting fundamental research and education in all of the non-medical fields of science and engineering.

The grants and initiatives of the NSF are all geared towards the achievements of its overall agency mission which is "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; and to secure the national defense."

In line with this mission, the National Science Foundation has recently established the Computing Education Grants Program for the 21st Century (CE21), wherein the agency primarily aims to create a robust computing research community, as well as a computationally competent 21st century workforce, and ultimately, a computationally empowered citizenry.

The NSF believes that there are three reason why the community has not yet achieved computational competence, first being that there is an underproduction of degrees that are essential to the computing and computing-associated workforce, second would be the ever pressing concern regarding the under-representation of various segments of the population, and finally, the sheer lack of a presence of computing in K-12 levels.
