External Opportunities: Equity Focus
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Galvanizing Health Equity through Novel and Diverse Educational Resources (GENDER) Initiative
This program will support educational activities that complement/enhance the training of a diverse workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. Specifically, this FOA will support the development of short courses, training modules, curricula, and other educational activities to enhance knowledge of sex and gender influences on health and disease among scientists, clinicians, and health professionals, and other stakeholders to accelerate the translation of that knowledge into practice.
Assessing and Addressing Community Exposures to Environmental Contaminants
This solicitation encourages multidisciplinary projects to investigate the potential health risks of environmental exposures of concern to a community and to develop and implement an environmental public health action plan based on research findings. Projects supported under this program will employ community-engaged research methods to conduct research and to translate research findings into public health action.
National Science Foundation (NSF)
- Analytics for Equity Initiative
The NSF is piloting the Analytics for Equity Initiative to support social, economic and behavioral sciences research that leverages federal data and scientific advances in researching equity-related topics for greater public benefit.
Racial Equity in STEM Education
Proposals funded by this solicitation will: (1) substantively contribute to institutionalizing effective research-based practices, policies, and outcomes in STEM environments for those who experience inequities caused by systemic racism and the broader community; (2) advance scholarship and promote racial equity in STEM in ways that expand the array of epistemologies, perspectives, ideas, theoretical and methodological approaches that NSF funds; and (3) further diversify project leadership (PIs and co-PIs) and institutions funded by NSF.
