CoP Meeting 1: How to Position Your Work for NSF DRK-12 Program STEM Education Research and Design Funding Opportunities

Event Date
Event Description

The Evidence Quality and Reach Hub (EQR), in partnership with Quality Education for Minorities (QEM) Network, is offering a free, four-part virtual community of practice to build aspiring DRK-12 grantees’, particularly those from minority serving institutions (MSI), knowledge of the components of the DRK12 solicitation and explore how to highlight personal and institutional assets in future proposal submissions.

This community of practice will provide aspiring grantees an opportunity to learn about the DRK-12 program and solicitation, interact with and learn from current and past NSF grantees from Minority Serving Institutions, identify personal, professional and institutional barriers to proposal submission, and explore how to use asset-based framing to highlight the strength and capacity of research teams and their institutions.

The community of practice will be held on March 19 and April 2 and 16, 2024 from 4-5:00pm EST, and April 30, 2024, from 4-5:30pm EST. To register for this community of practice, please complete an interest form by March 5:

This community of practice aligns with the EQR Hub’s goal to offer services and resources related to research methods; knowledge translation; and diversity, equity, and inclusion to current and aspiring DRK-12 grantees.
