FORWARD to Professorship sitehttp://www.student.seas.gwu.edu/~forward/resources.php "Focus on Reaching Women for Academics, Research and Development in Science, Engineering and Mathematics (FORWARD) is a joint program of the George Washington and Gallaudet Universities funded by the National Science Foundation, originally by the Program for Women and Girls and, more recently, by several ADVANCE awards and one NIH award. The goal has been from the beginning and continues today to advance women, the Deaf and other underrepresented minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines." --From site
"The goal of the ADVANCE program is to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce. Creative strategies to realize this goal are sought from women and men. Members of underrepresented minority groups and individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Proposals that address the participation and advancement of women with disabilities and of women from underrepresented minority groups are encouraged."--From the NSF ADVANCE Grant Webpage
