The Louis Stokes Midwest Regional Center of Excellence for Broadening Participation in STEM (LSMRCE) announces
the launch of its LSMRCE Collaborative Broadening Participation Research Mini-Grants Program to support broadening participation
research collaboration at LSMRCE-affiliated colleges and universities.
The LSMRCE Collaborative BP Research Mini-Grants program was developed to support faculty at LSMRCE-affiliated colleges
and universities partner with BP researchers to conduct timely, relevant broadening participation research that may add to the broader BP literature,
improve experiences for historically underrepresented populations in STEM locally, or allow for the testing of BP interventions across multiple institutions, to name a few.
LSMRCE Broadening Participation Research Mini-Grants Program seeks to support STEM faculty at non-LSAMP campuses
engage in social science research that investigates locally important broadening participation issues.
