The National Science Foundation recently announced the four 2022 NSF INCLUDES awardees. These new alliances will each receive $10 million over five years to contribute to building an inclusive STEM workforce. The awardees will tackle issues like increasing data science capacity at minority-serving institutions (MSIs), increasing the representation of Native American and Alaska Native students in STEM fields, and supporting equitable pathways to postdoctoral fellowship positions.

The 2022 NSF INCLUDES Alliances are:

  • NSF INCLUDES National Data Science Alliance - Clark Atlanta University
  • NSF INCLUDES Alliance Supporting Pacific Impact through Computational Excellence - Chaminade University of Honolulu and the University of Texas at Austin
  • NSF INCLUDES Re-Imagining STEM Equity Utilizing Postdoctoral Pathways Alliance - University of Maryland, Baltimore County

The NSF INCLUDES Alliance awards are part of NSF’s commitment to building a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive STEM workforce in the U.S.
