NSF’s Jill Denner to Discuss Supplemental Funding on February 2 BPC Community Forum Webinar

By Andres Purpuro, Program Assistant, CERP

Are you an active NSF CISE award recipient with a Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) Plan? Or are you a computing researcher interested in deepening your understanding of how BPC efforts get funded?

Join us for the next BPC Community Forum webinar on Friday, February 2 at 12 p.m. ET for a discussion led by the National Science Foundation’s Jill Denner on the recent Dear Colleague Letter for BPC Supplements. 


The letter, published in December, invites recipients with certain active CISE awards (e.g., CISE Core, SaTC, CPS) with BPC plans to submit requests for BPC Supplements, which are strongly encouraged to be submitted by March 31. Join our BPC Community Forum to learn more about the eligibility for BPC Supplements, the nature of their support, preparation and submission tips, and reporting BPC activities and outcomes. 

Registration is required to attend this Zoom webinar event. After registering with your name and email address, you will receive an email confirmation with the Zoom webinar link. 

The live transcript will be turned on for this BPC Community Forum webinar. If you have any accessibility needs, please reach out to
