New Dear Colleague Letter aims to expand geographic and institutional diversity in the social, behavioral and economic sciences

The U.S. National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE) is encouraging submissions of both new proposals and supplemental funding requests from Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) eligible institutions. A new Dear Colleague Letter aims to broaden geographic and demographic participation and to promote SBE-funded activities that enable sustainable growth and competitiveness across all 28 EPSCoR jurisdictions

Proposals from institutions across EPSCoR-eligible jurisdictions are encouraged to submit to all SBE programs. Collaborative proposals led by EPSCoR institutions, and proposals from Minority Serving Institutions and Emerging Research Institutions in EPSCoR jurisdictions are particularly welcomed.
