Workforce Equity for Persona with Disabilities in STEM and STEM Education


National Science Foundation


The purpose of this program is to “support fundamental, applied, and translational research that advances knowledge about diverse, equitable, inclusive and accessible STEM and STEM education workplaces and postsecondary training environments for persons with disabilities.” In supporting this research, NSF hopes to “increase the undergraduate and graduate STEM and STEM education degree completion rates of postsecondary students with disabilities, as well as the employment of persons with disabilities in STEM and STEM education workplaces.”


Proposals should include plans to assess the success of project activities, a rationale for the proposal evaluation mechanism(s), and a description of how assessment activities will be implemented and used to inform the continuous improvement of the project.


Proposals are due on September 17, 2024
