The TUES program was developed to provide support to strengthen undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curricula and teaching practices. With an annual budget of roughly $40 million, this program represents the primary source of federal support available to undergraduate institutions for improving STEM teaching and learning

The program funds a wide range of projects that address one or more of the following:

– creating learning materials and strategies
– implementing new instructional strategies
– developing faculty expertise
– assisting and evaluating student achievement
– conducting research on undergraduate STEM education

Proposals to the TUES program are of different types based on the scale, scope, and maturity of the project. The UPTYC program is focused on Type1 proposals which are typically new projects designed for local (institutional) implementation.
