The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to promote improvements in the education of undergraduates who enroll in science, mathematics, engineering, or technology (SMET) courses. The NSF Director’s Award for Distinguished Teaching Scholars (DTS) recognizes and rewards individuals with distinguished records of educating undergraduates while also contributing significantly to the scholarship of a SMET discipline. DTS is part of NSF’s effort to promote an academic culture that values and rewards members of the community who contribute to both disciplinary scholarship and the SMET education of undergraduates, including students who are not majoring in SMET disciplines. The Director’s Award is the highest honor bestowed by the NSF for excellence in both teaching and research in SMET fields, or in educational research related to these disciplines. The awards will be conferred at a ceremony held at the National Science Foundation.
