National Science Foundation Doling Out $8 Million to Promote Diversity

National Science Foundation Doling Out $8 Million to Promote Diversity

“roughly $300,000 each”

Shouldn’t the focus here be on science and not promoting identity politics?

Campus Reform reports:

Feds pay $8M+ to promote ‘diversity’ in STEM

The National Science Foundation recently issued 27 new grants totaling more than $8 million to promote “diversity and inclusion” in STEM fields.

On Monday, the agency announced the launch of 27 new “diversity and inclusion” projects funded through grants of roughly $300,000 each through its NSF INCLUDES program, which seeks to develop STEM talent “from all sectors and groups in our society.”

Founded by Congress in 1950, the NSF is a federal agency that seeks to promote the “progress of science” by funding research, according to its website. Bobbie Mixon, the Senior Public Affairs Officer at the NSF, confirmed to Campus Reform that the grants collectively cost American taxpayers a total of “$8,083,298.”

Of these grants, many were explicitly made to fund projects that target racial and ethnic minority populations.

One project, led by professor David Auckly of Kansas State University, aims to promote math skills among Native Americans through the promotion of the “Navajo Nation Math Circle model,” which incorporates “indigenous knowledge systems” into math education in public schools.

“Math circles will work with [indigenous people] to include cultural activities; this helps engage the participants. The main thing math circles do is engage and inspire participants to have fun exploring mathematical problem,” Professor Auckly told Campus Reform.

This is not exactly new…been happening since before I started undergrad in the 90s.

They were doing it when I started college in the mid-70s. When are we going to realize that affirmative action, in addition to being immoral and illegal, just doesn’t work?

Diversity is an euphemism for “We’re Seizing Power.”

These used to be called “NSF Minority Graduate Fellowships.” Once the Supreme Court blessed colleges seeking “diversity” in their students, “diversity” became the new euphemism for racial discrimination. Just as with the Minority Graduate Fellowships, however, these new grants are racially discriminatory. White students (and especially white males) need not apply.
