“I am truly grateful to LSEF. Getting my NSF grant funded has taken a huge weight off my chest, reduced my stress, and given me confidence in my academic trajectory.”2021 JEDI Awardee and 2024 LSEF Co-Director Dr. Crystal Rogers, Associate Professor, UC Davis.
EVERYONE DESERVES AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUCCEED
There is talent everywhere. Yet, people are being excluded from the scientific community. We want to change the scientific culture to make it more inclusive, equitable, and diverse.
