Letter of Intent Due Oct. 1; Full Proposal Due Nov. 10
The Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) Program is designed to address the fact that certain groups are underrepresented in the geosciences relative to their proportions in the general population. Goals of the OEDG Program are to increase participation in the geosciences by minorities, and to increase the perceived relevance of the geosciences among diverse segments of the population. The OEDG Program supports activities that will increase the number of members of underrepresented groups who:
- Are involved in formal pre-college geoscience education programs;
- Pursue and earn associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in the geosciences;
- Enter geoscience careers; and
- Participate in informal geoscience education programs.
The OEDG Program offers three funding Tracks: OEGD Planning Grants, Proof-of-Concept (short-term) project, and Full-Scale (long-term) projects.
