|Deadline for Notice of Intent (NOI):||01/29/18|
|Limit on Number of Proposals:||One- KU-L and KUMC: Considered independent organizations.|
The purpose of the NSF INCLUDES program is to broaden participation in STEM fields through a National Network that will inspire collaborative efforts aimed at increasing the active participation of those who have been traditionally underserved and underrepresented in particular STEM fields or across all fields of STEM: women, persons with disabilities, African Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, and persons from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
With the NSF INCLUDES Alliances call, NSF is introducing opportunities for successful Design and Development Launch Pilots to build upon their achievements and propose an NSF INCLUDES Alliance that has the potential to substantially broaden participation in STEM fields. Alliances will use lessons learned, promising practices, and evidence-based mechanisms from the Design and Development Launch Pilots; the science of broadening participation literature; and the research and evaluations from past and present efforts related to broadening participation in STEM.
The critical functions of each NSF INCLUDES Alliance are to:
At least one Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator from an NSF INCLUDES Design and Development Launch Pilot must be included as a PI/Co-PI on the Alliance proposal. Awards will range from $1 million to $2.5 million per year for 5 years, depending on the goals, objectives, and the size of the communities affected.
