This is a survey to determine your interest in and availability for serving on a panel for the National Science Foundation (NSF) to review proposals for the new agency-wide initiative, NSF INCLUDES (Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science). NSF INCLUDES is a comprehensive national initiative designed to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) discoveries and innovations focused on NSF’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and broadening participation in these fields. NSF INCLUDES supports efforts to create networked relationships among organizations whose goals include developing talent from all sectors of society to build the STEM workforce. This initiative seeks to improve collaborative efforts aimed at enhancing the preparation, increasing the participation, and ensuring the contributions of individuals from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented and underserved in the STEM enterprise. For more information, please consult the program solicitation at https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2017/nsf17522/nsf17522.htm.
The information requested on this survey form is pursuant to the National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as amended. Disclosure of all information is entirely voluntary. The information you provide will assist us in creating panels to ensure a diversity of expertise and experiences. Other NSF programs requesting names of potential reviewers or specialists in particular fields may also be given information from this form. Except for these purposes, this information will not be disclosed except as part of statistical reports or in a form that would not allow identification of individuals.
Thank you for your interest in broadening participation to effect impact on a national scale. For more information about NSF INCLUDES, see http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/nsfincludes/index.jsp.
We appreciate your taking the time to complete the survey and thank you for your participation!
