EPSCoR Opportunities in the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences

About the series

The U.S. National Science Foundation Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) extends a warm invitation to our upcoming webinar focusing on the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).

  • Date: Thursday, June 13th
  • Time: 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST
  • Register now

At this webinar, we will delve into the wealth of opportunities available through our Dear Colleague Letter: Expanding Geographic and Institutional Diversity in Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE), designed to foster geographic and demographic diversity in research. We are committed to promoting SBE-funded activities that drive sustainable growth and competitiveness across all 28 EPSCoR jurisdictions.

Our agenda includes:

  • Exploring funding opportunities for EPSCoR-eligible institutions.
  • Discussing collaborative proposals, with a special focus on Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and Emerging Research Institutions (ERIs).
  • Understanding the broader impact of EPSCoR research on our nation's scientific landscape.

This webinar is not just an opportunity to learn—it's a chance to engage with NSF representatives and gain invaluable insights into shaping your proposals for success.

For any inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us at nsfsbe-epscorinquiry@nsf.gov.

On June 13, 2024, program officers from the Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences Directorate at the U.S. National Science Foundation held a webinar about funding opportunities for researchers in states and jurisdictions that have historically received a smaller share of federal research funding. The EPSCoR program aims to strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematics capacity and capability in those targeted geographical areas.
