ADVANCE Resource and Coordination (ARC) Network Pre-propsal Presentation
Organizations interested in partnering to develop a ARC Network proposal are advised to discuss the ARC Network proposal with the ADVANCE program officers before submitting. Please review the program solicitation and the NSF Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) when preparing and submitting an ARC Network proposal (PAPP Guide).
Target date for ARC Network proposals: March 15, 2017
The goal of the ARC Network is to advance gender equity for STEM faculty nationally by facilitating the adoption and implementation of evidence-based systemic changes by institutions of higher education and other STEM organizations that affect those in STEM academic careers. The ARC Network is expected to have the range of expertise and the infrastructure needed to implement the network activities which may require a partnership among multiple existing organizations.
ADVANCE anticipates supporting one ARC Network project for five years. Proposals may request a total budget of $5 million, for an average of $1 million each year for five years.
