Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the research community has faced unprecedented challenges that have tested the people and infrastructure that make up the U.S. scientific research enterprise. Despite these difficulties, you have continued doing the scientific work that creates opportunities, spurs innovation, and improves quality of life for individuals, families and communities across the U.S. The U.S. National Science Foundation plays a unique role in supporting the undergraduate, graduate students, postdocs, and early career faculty who represent the future of science, engineering, and STEM Education in the U.S. This support will remain a top priority for NSF as we seek to recover from the pandemic. This includes support for individuals as well as institutions that serve members of historically underrepresented groups. NSF continues to offer opportunities that can help bolster early-career researchers, students and others in the scientific enterprise who may be in a difficult situation due to the pandemic. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your NSF program manager should you be in need of assistance.
