Program evaluation for funded projects typically is undertaken during the award lifetime, and immediately afterward, but only rarely is the enduring impact assessed after an extended period of time has lapsed and project funds have ended. Our ongoing research aims to assess the long term impact of the New Mexico Nanoscience Education Network (NMNEN; 2007-2011).
