The goal of this effort is to fund researchers to produce rigorous empirical evidence and research in equity-related topics aligned to agency Learning Agendas, that federal agencies and other organizations can use to increase the impact of equity-focused evidence-based strategies.


NSF Cultural Transformation in the Geoscience Community (CTGC)
Amount: Varies by type of grant (see RFP for details)
Letter of Intent (Required) Deadline: February 1, 2023
Full Proposal Deadline: April 3, 2023

Note: This is a limited submission opportunity. Please contact Tyler Matsamas if considering applying.

Our future sustainability and prosperity will require a transdisciplinary geoscience workforce that reflects the nation’s diversity and has the capacity to develop innovative solutions necessary to meet future environmental and societal challenges. The Geosciences Directorate (GEO) proposes a novel approach to simultaneously address two major challenges that require immediate action, (1) foster a just, equitable and inclusive geoscience research community that reflects the diversity of the United States and (2) develop a workforce with the skills required to understand how the Earth system can continue to sustain society. Cultural Transformation in the Geoscience Community (CTGC) responds to the desire of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds to make a difference in their world and supports the creative power of truly diverse groups to make major strides in Earth System Science in service of humanity. CTGC aims at engaging institutions that support Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), persons with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, and other individuals from marginalized/ minoritized groups, to help promote career advancement, and advance Earth system science.


NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM)
Amount: varies by track (estimated funding amount is $80M to $120M for 50-90 awards)
Deadline: varies by track (March 2, 2023, is earliest)
The main goal of the S-STEM program is to enable low-income students with academic ability, talent or potential to pursue successful careers in promising STEM fields. Ultimately, the S-STEM program seeks to increase the number of academically promising low-income students who graduate with a S-STEM eligible degree and contribute to the American innovation economy with their STEM knowledge. Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program provides awards to institutions of higher education (IHEs) not only to fund scholarships, but also to adapt, implement, and study evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities that have been shown to be effective supporting recruitment, retention, transfer (if appropriate), student success, academic/career pathways, and graduation in STEM.


NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) Conferences and Workshops
Amount: $100,000
Deadline: March 15, 2023
The National Science Foundation (NSF) seeks to encourage nationally transformative ideas and scalable models to strengthen the Nation’s research enterprise, particularly at emerging research and minority-serving institutions. In the past several decades, the complexity of managing externally funded activities has increased significantly. The recent pandemic has exacerbated this issue through increased attrition of research enterprise professionals and additional budget constraints. Insufficient resources hinder institutional ability to develop and manage externally funded projects, reducing the opportunity to fully realize the outcomes from creativity present in all the Nation’s institutions of higher education and their partners. Beginning in FY2023, GRANTED, a new NSF-wide initiative, will seek to address these issues. Through this DCL, NSF invites requests to fund conferences, symposia, and workshops (hereafter referred to as conferences) centered around one or more of the three primary themes of GRANTED: enhancing practices and processes within the research enterprise, strengthening the research enterprise workforce, and partnering with national and regional professional societies to translate effective practices into diverse institutional and organizational contexts.
