Racial Equity in STEM Education
This solicitation aligns with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) long-standing investments in thedevelopment of a diverse and well-prepared public and workforce, which was recently reinforced in the NSF Vision: “A nation that leads the world in science and engineering research and innovation, to the benefit of all, without barriers to participation,” p. 9, NSF 2022-2026 Strategic Plan(https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2022/nsf22068/nsf22068.pdf). The NSF Strategic Plan focuses on ensuring that U.S. research is an inclusive enterprise that benefits from the talent of all sectors of American society – a research enterprise that incorporates the richdemographic and geographic diversity of the nation. The strategic plan recognizes that the more people who engage in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)research and the more diverse their backgrounds, the richer the range of questions asked. The result is a greater breadth of discovery and more creative solutions to societal challenges.
Racial inequities often create barriers to STEM knowledge generation, as well as access to and participation in all aspects of STEM education, research, and the workforce. In ongoing efforts to address these disparities, NSF EHR seeks to support bold, groundbreaking, and potentially transformative projects that contribute to advancing racial equity in STEM education and workforcedevelopment through practice and/or fundamental or applied research.EHR’s missionbuilds from the NSF Strategic Plan, seeking “to achieve excellence in U.S. science, technology,engineeringand mathematics (STEM) education at all levels and in all settings (both formal and informal) in order to support thedevelopment of a diverse and well-prepared workforce of scientists, technicians, engineers, mathematicians and educators and a well-informed citizenry that have access to the ideas and tools of science and engineering. The purpose of these activities is to enhance the quality of life of all citizens and the health, prosperity,welfareand security of the nation.”
