NCAR Directorate Diversity Funding

NCAR Directorate Diversity Funding

The NCAR Diversity Committee is in charge of managing the NCAR Directorate Diversity Fund (approximately $120K a year) and solicits proposals towards the NCAR diversity mission every year. Principal investigators are encouraged to work with their laboratory/observatory (each lab/observatory has $40K per year for diversity activities) prior to the proposal submission. Proposals are reviewed by a review panel convened by the NCAR Diversity Committee. The review panel provides proposal reviews and ranking recommendations to the NCAR Executive Committee, which makes the final award decisions.
