The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) at NSF offers two funding opportunities under this solicitation 1) Research Initiation Grants (RIG) and 2) Career Advancement Awards (CAA), with the goal of broadening the participation of scientists from groups underrepresented in the biological sciences in the U.S. These activities seek to promote the development and retention of scientists from underrepresented groups and to increase the numbers of such individuals that serve as role models for the scientific workforce of the future. A specific goal is to increase the number of research proposals submitted to NSF by individuals from groups currently underrepresented in the biological sciences as well as from scientists at minority serving institutions so they can become actively and competitively engaged in research as independent investigators and, by so doing,
create new research opportunities for students from underrepresented groups.
