Grants available for teams seeking to diversify STEM

The Aspire Alliance is seeking to fund teams of two- and four-year institutions that want to work together to diversify and better prepare STEM faculty at two-year colleges. The deadline for applications is Aug. 16.

Read the full call for proposals.

According to the alliance:

A planning grant supports the purposeful connection-making between 2-year and 4-year faculty members, administrators, staff members, industry partners, and other organizations within regions.

We expect that these partners will spend up to one year discussing the two goals of the (regional collaborative) initiative, and what it would take to achieve those goals within their region on a longer-term basis. It is not expected that all of these connections will be in place before submitting the planning grant.

The major part of the work during the planning grant will be building these relationships.

There are four existing regional collaboratives. Check out this one in Iowa or this one in California. The alliance is seeking to add three others with its current call for proposals.
