Call for Proposals: NSF Funding Opportunities

Message from Joseph Whitmeyer, Program Director at NSF:

Dear ASA Section Chair:

I am contacting you to ask you to distribute this information concerning two new NSF funding opportunities to your section members, who may be interested in one or both of them.  They both appeared within the past week and both have relatively close deadlines.  The Build and Broaden Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) has a deadline of May 1, and the General Social Survey competition has a Letter of Intent due June 1.

Briefly, the Build and Broaden DCL ( is to support conferences to foster collaborations among institutions that include at least one Minority-Serving Institution.

The General Social Survey has been substantially supported by the NSF since its inception.  The last recompetition was in 2008 and a lot has changed since then, which should enable some strong, innovative proposals this time.  This solicitation ( concerns two cycles of the survey, in 2022 and 2024.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you in advance for this assistance!
