Special Projects Grants
Since 2003 SIGCSE has awarded a limited number of Special Projects Grants each year. These grants help SIGCSE members investigate and introduce new ideas in the learning and teaching of computing. Projects must provide some clear benefit to the wider disciplinary community in the form of new knowledge, developing or sharing of a resource, or good practice in learning, teaching, or assessment.
The List of Previous Projects displays an amazing depth and breadth of productive work performed for the computing education community through the work of the investigators and the support of SIGCSE.
The Application Process is relatively informal. Proposal submissions have no closing date but will be considered twice per year, with rolling deadlines of May 15 and November 15. Applications must indicate the purpose of the project, how it will be conducted, the start date and duration of the project, reasons why the project is particularly timely, and its expected outcome. In addition to the specified project outcomes, successful proposers also agree to:
- Produce a brief report on their completed project for the SIGCSE Board.
- Publish results for the SIGCSE community, for example as papers or posters at such SIGCSE-sponsored conferences as the Symposium, ITiCSE, and ICER, or by submitting to such computer science education publications as ACM Inroads or ACM Transactions on Computing Education.
