Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) program that focuses on addressing systemic barriers within the nation’s research enterprise by improving research support and service capacity. It is a whole-of-NSF approach that will transform NSF and the science and engineering community to develop the collective knowledge, skills, talents and desire to serve within the nation’s science and engineering enterprise.

The West Virginia GRANTED project will hold regional meetings prior to a statewide convening in May. We will bring together STEM grant administration personnel and faculty from colleges in the region to identify barriers to proposal submission and post-award grant administration.
