Description: The Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program supports partnerships with higher education, government, and industry across multiple geographic jurisdictions to build sustainable research, education, and workforce development infrastructures in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Research areas of interest are outlined in the program solicitation. Innovative educational activities should engage kindergarten through grade 12 students, undergraduate and graduate students, and faculty. Project plans must reflect individual, institutional, geographic, and disciplinary diversity. Critical components are the development of early career faculty underrepresented in STEM fields, and the involvement of traditionally underrepresented groups at all project levels. Integration of Minority-Serving Institutions, primarily undergraduate institutions, and community colleges is strongly recommended.
