SCET Broader Impact Activities for NSF

Collaborate with SCET on your next NSF grant

SCET can help you meet your Broader Impact (BI) goals

  • Increased proposal competitiveness
  • Increased US economic competitiveness
  • Development of a diverse, globally competitive STEM workforce
  • Improved STEM education and educator development

And, depending on your target audience:

  • Full participation of women, persons with disabilities and underrepresented minorities in STEM
  • Increased partnerships between academia, industry, and others
  • Increased public scientific literacy and public engagement with science and technology

Model 1: Graduate and Faculty Programs

Collaborating PIs may reserve seats for their BI participants in one of two SCET technology innovation programs that seek to increase the commercial and societal impact of technical research areas.

Model 2: Undergraduate and Graduate Mixed Programs

PIs will be able to offer their BI participants meaningful hands-on laboratory experiences in our Challenge Lab or Innovation Collider Program.

Model 3: Industry, Undergraduate and Graduate, Postdocs, and Underserved Communities Programs
