Letter of intent due July 1, 2022
California has a critical need to train and retain diverse coastal science leaders who have the perspectives and expertise to address complex, socio-ecological issues to meet the needs of diverse, including underserved, coastal communities. Engaging in research is a critical way to introduce and retain students in marine and coastal sciences, as well as prepare students for careers in these fields. The Pathways to Inclusive Research Training Program seeks to fund research mentors to pilot or expand innovative initiatives that involve undergraduate students in meaningful ways in research, foster a culture of belonging, and provide high-quality interaction of students with research mentors and professional development opportunities.
This funding opportunity seeks to support research mentors in developing pilot research programs that broaden participation and a sense of belonging for undergraduate students from groups that are underrepresented and underserved in marine and coastal sciences, particularly Black or African-American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic or Latine, female, nonbinary, first-generation college students, veterans, LGBTQIA2S+, and students with disabilities.
