NSF Accepting Proposals for New GRANTED Equity and Diversity Program

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting proposals for the Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) program, a new initiative within NSF’s Broadening Participation efforts aiming to provide funding for strategies to address inequalities and challenges within the research enterprise. The GRANTED program may support research and development on inequalities but may also support administrative and infrastructure needs to achieve equity in research. Proposals for the GRANTED program should center around at least one of the following main themes:

  • Enhancing practices and processes within the research enterprise;
  • Developing and strengthening human capital within the research enterprise;
  • Translating effective practices related to the research enterprise into diverse institutional and organizational contexts through partnerships with professional societies and organizations.

The GRANTED Program holds weekly office hours every Wednesday to address questions and concerns. The program does not have a specific deadline; however, proposals are encouraged to be submitted as soon as possible to be reviewed for the current fiscal year. More information is available on the program’s website.
