LEAPS-MPS Webinar: 11/30/2022

November 14, 2022

The Launching Early-Career Academic Pathways in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (LEAPS-MPS) (NSF 22-604) program supports tenure-track (or equivalent) but non-tenured faculty members at institutions of higher education in MPS who have not previously served as principal investigators, co-principal investigators, or senior personnel on an NSF-funded research award. We particularly encourage submissions from applicants at R2 institutions, as defined in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, as well as minority-serving institutions (MSIs), including historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), tribal colleges and universities (TCUs), and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving institutions (AANAPISIs). As part of the proposal, applicants should include a discussion of how the proposed research activities will facilitate development of a subsequent research proposal, and present a plan that demonstrates the way in which the proposed activities will increase the participation of scientists who are underrepresented minorities, ultimately helping to create role models for the scientific workforce of the future.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 at 2:00 PM EDT for information on the LEAPS-MPS program. Registration is required for the webinar via the following link:
