NSF 12-584 ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers

Request Research Help

The goal of the ADVANCE program is to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce. ADVANCE focuses on ensuring that women faculty with earned STEM degrees consider academia as a viable and attractive career option. This program does not support projects to increase or retain the number of women entering into or persisting in STEM doctoral degree programs. Thus, efforts to impact the STEM pipeline are not considered appropriate for the ADVANCE Program.

The University may submit only one Institutional Transformation (IT) proposal or one IT-Catalyst proposal. There is no limit on the number of Partnership Adaptation, Implementation and Dissemination (PAID) proposals that can be submitted.
