To achieve

Improve representation in the scientific enterprise by making changes that will lead to an increase in proposal submissions from underrepresented and underserved applicants and communities.

By September 30, 2023, NSF will increase both the number and proportion of proposals received 1) with principal investigators from groups underrepresented in STEM and 2) from underserved institutions by 10 percent over the FY 2020 baselines.
