Webinar on new DCL Catalyzing Institutional Change to Support Equity, Inclusion, and Access in STEM Academic Careers and Advanced Degree Attainment
April 11, 2023
Please attend a webinar on April 27 3-4:30pm EST to learn about the opportunities in the recently released Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 23-087). Proposals that support the goals articulated in the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 (Public Law. 117-167) are encouraged. Section 10329, Support for Increasing Diversity Among Stem Faculty at Institutions of Higher Education, authorizes NSF to make awards to institutions of higher education for the development and assessment of innovative reform efforts designed to increase the recruitment, retention, and advancement of individuals from underrepresented minority groups in academic STEM careers. Program officers from the NSF ADVANCE and AGEP programs will present on the opportunity.
