Committee on Equal Opportunity in Science and Engineering 
Solicitation of Recommendations for Membership

SUMMARY: The National Science Foundation (NSF) solicits recommendations 
for membership on the Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and 
Engineering (CEOSE) (1173). Recommendations should consist of the name 
of the recommended individual, the individual's curriculum vita, and an 
expression of the recommended individual's interest, and include the 
following contact information: recommended individual's address, 
telephone number, FAX number, and e-mail address. Self recommendations 
are accepted.

DATES: Recommendations must be received no later than March 14, 2011.

ADDRESSES: Recommendations should be sent to Dr. Margaret Tolbert, 
CEOSE Executive Liaison at National Science Foundation, Room 935, 4201 
Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230 or to mtolbert@nsf.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Please see http://www.nsf.gov/od/oia/activities/ceose/index.jsp. Call the CEOSE Executive Liaison at 703-
292-8040, or send an e-mail message to mtolbert@nsf.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Members are appointed by the Director of the 
NSF to serve on the Committee for a three year term. With appropriate 
justification, members may be reappointed for only one additional three 
year term (42 U.S.C. 1885c). CEOSE provides advice to NSF on the 
implementation of the provisions of the Science and Engineering Equal 
Opportunities Act (42 U.S.C. 1885), and on NSF matters relating to 
opportunities for the participation in, and advancement of, women, 
minorities, and persons with disabilities in education, training, and 
science and engineering research programs (42 U.S.C. 1885c).
    NSF is dedicated to the support of education and fundamental 
research in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) 
disciplines. NSF's mission is to ensure that the United States 
maintains leadership in scientific discovery and the development of new 
technologies. Broadening participation in STEM is a vital aspect of the 
NSF mission, and CEOSE recommendations assist NSF in fulfilling this 
aspect of its mission.
    Recommendations for membership are encouraged from the STEM 
community, including professional societies, academe, industry, and 
government. Recommended individuals should possess expertise in a 
disciplinary or interdisciplinary field(s) supported by NSF, as well as 
knowledge and experience related to broadening participation by 
underrepresented groups (women, underrepresented minorities, and 
persons with disabilities) in STEM. NSF seeks qualified individuals for 
current and future vacancies. Recommendations will be kept on file for 
12 months from the recommendation deadline stated above.

    Dated: January 18, 2011.
Susanne Bolton,
Committee Management Officer.
