The Biden Administration says they are fighting “systemic racism” and working to further “racial equity” in science, technology, engineering, and math-related careers by funneling millions in grants to promote equity in learning.

As reported by Just the News, the administration is moving millions through the National Science Foundation in the form of grants. An official with the Department of Energy said that the “data makes it clear that we need diversity in STEM.”

They added “We really want to see a diverse pipeline of future workforce and our problem-solvers and scientists.”

The NSF has a synopsis on its website on the program it uses to pursue racial tasks, the Racial Equity in STEM Education Program.

“Persistent racial injustices and inequalities in the United States have led to renewed concern and interest in addressing systemic racism,” the website reads. “The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) seeks to support bold, groundbreaking and potentially transformative projects addressing systemic racism in STEM.”

Just the News found that $30 million will be going to 45 grant winners in 2021, according to government grant tracking.

The news comes as Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said “the data makes it clear that we need diversity in STEM” at Howard University last week.
