The Mathematical and Physical Sciences Ascending Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (MPS-Ascend) (NSF 22-501) program provides support for postdoctoral fellows who will broaden the participation of groups that are  underrepresented in mathematical and physical sciences (MPS) fields in the U.S. including Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Native Pacific Islanders and enable the fellows to develop as future leaders in MPS. Awards will support research in any scientific area within the purview of the five MPS Divisions: Astronomical Sciences (AST), Chemistry (CHE), Materials Research (DMR), Mathematical Sciences (DMS), and Physics (PHY). Proposals must be submitted by the potential postdoc (not by the postdoc mentor), and applicants must be U.S. citizens (or nationals) or legally admitted permanent residents of the U.S. (Green Card holders) at the time the proposal is submitted. The proposal should present research, professional development, and plans that describe how the suggested activities will broaden the participation of underrepresented minorities who will become leaders in MPS fields. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the fellows. Underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

Please join us on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM EST for information on the MPS-Ascend program. Registration is required for the webinar via the following link:
