Description: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is committed to broadening participation, and this is evident through the variety of investment priorities related to preparing a diverse, globally-engaged science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce; integrating research with education, and building capacity; and expanding efforts to broaden participation from underrepresented groups and diverse institutions across all geographical regions in all NSF activities. Participants will learn about two funding opportunities, the Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) program and the Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program. Both programs are designed to support organizational and research capacity building and effective practices for increasing underrepresented students’ degree attainment in STEM.
