During this webinar, expert panelists will share diverse perspectives (agency, applicant, mentor) about the current disparity in STEM research grant funding. Panelists will discuss real and perceived barriers, including bias in peer review, provide an overview of the innovative steps NIH is taking to make the grant application process more equitable, and reflect on the personal and professional consequences when minority STEM faculty fail to obtain funding for their research. Panelists will also offer practical strategies and advice to encourage and empower potential applicants when submitting their STEM grant proposals for peer review. Although the panelists will highlight their experiences with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), the strategies and advice will be useful regardless of the applicant's choice of funding agency.
