The Research Coordination Networks in Undergraduate Biology Education (RCN-UBE) has been developed as a targeted Undergraduate Biology Education track in recognition of the importance of networking activities to advance undergraduate biology education. The goal of the RCN program is to advance a field or create new directions in research or education by supporting groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their research, training, and educational activities across disciplinary, organizational, geographic, and international boundaries.
RCN-UBEs in general will support groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their efforts across disciplinary, organizational, institutional, geographical, and/or international boundaries. The objectives are to facilitate exchange of information and resources, to integrate research and education activities for biologists/educators around topics of common interest, to nurture a sense of community, to minimize isolation, and to maximize cooperation. Achieving these objectives will create synergies and eliminate unnecessary duplication of efforts.
RCN-UBE proposals can be up to five years in duration, with budgets up to $500,000. To assist initial networking efforts of scientists and educators who are developing innovative proposals for the RCN-UBE program, the RCN-UBE will accept Incubator proposals for up to $75,000 for one year.

Each year it sponsors the research and teaching activities of approximately 1200 American scholars and professionals in more than 125 countries abroad. The American grantees come from 400-500 different institutions across the country. Fulbright also welcomes to the United States more than 800 scholars from around the world to conduct research and to teach in American universities, colleges, institutes and laboratories.
Every year, using various media, the Fulbright Scholar Program reaches out to academics and practitioners in all fields of academic endeavor to emphasize its interest in their participation. One persistent bit of Fulbright “mythology” is that the program is not interested in applicants in the sciences. Whether referred to as STEM fields, the hard and the applied sciences, biology, physics or earth sciences, all science disciplines have been and continue to be welcome.
Among the opportunities included in the competition there are numerous specific and All Discipline awards in STEM fields:
448 – Biological Sciences
Fifty-one countries in every region of the globe are offering awards specific to STEM fields. They range from large programs in Brazil, Canada, and India to smaller ones in Mauritius, Kosovo and Panama. There are Chair positions in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, India, Italy, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
Recent innovations to the Scholar Program include increased stipend levels in many awards; opportunities in 88 countries for flex awards that allow the grant to be spread out over two to three years; and postdoctoral/early career grants in over 80 countries.
Finally, many Fulbright grantees use their opportunity in combination with sabbaticals and other grants to bolster their support and pursue overseas activities that might not otherwise be supported.
The Fulbright Scholar Program actively serves many purposes simultaneously. It supports research and teaching, it builds bridges between scholars and institutions, it enhances reputations, it supports globalization and it encourages Americans and others to comprehend the challenges and values inherent in world citizenship.
