Event Date
Event Description

Dear Colleagues:

NSF is excited by the growing interest and ongoing conversations about the Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) initiative.

In case you missed the first one, we are offering a second GRANTED webinar on February 23rd, 2023, at 2:00pm ET. The GRANTED initiative is a unique new funding opportunity for NSF focused on building capacity within the Nation’s research enterprise* and reducing barriers to research competitiveness. The first funding opportunity is now available via Dear Colleague Letter NSF 23-037. It is a call for convenings intended to build and energize communities to help shape future GRANTED funding opportunities and be better prepared to submit ambitious proposals in response to those calls.

To participate in the webinar, please click here to REGISTER now or see the link below.


The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Provide an overview of the GRANTED initiative and share updates
  • Meet the GRANTED staff
  • Hear from the community, provide clarification, and answer questions

The webinar will also serve to center conversation around the three GRANTED themes. Those themes include:

  1. Enhancing practices and processes within the research enterprise
  2. Strengthening the research enterprise workforce
  3. Partnering with national and regional professional societies that specialize in various aspects of the research enterprise to translate effective practices into diverse institutional and organizational contexts.

Visit the GRANTED webpage to watch our first webinar or join the mailing list here. We encourage you to send questions ahead of the webinar to GRANTED@nsf.gov. Please share this information with your colleagues.
