The Scientific Advocate Network (SAN) program aims to increase diversity in materials research and education with a goal of increasing diversity of the STEM pipeline of Under Represented Minority (URM), women, and persons with disabilities.
Funding priority will be given to proposals that show significant promise to positively impact the diversity of the pipeline. To achieve this, the SAN program provides four primary funding types:
- Support for URM undergraduate students in research related to MADE in SC
- Support for increasing the recruitment of a diverse group of graduate students
- Support for hosting scientific conferences, symposia, and meetings in South Carolina that aim to increase diversity of the STEM student pipeline
- Support for other specific approaches to Broadening Participation in STEM
Full Proposal due Mon, Oct 7, 5 pm EST
