NSF grant to increase female faculty in sciences

Washington State University in Pullman, WA, has received a $3.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation to increase the representation and advancement of faculty women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines.

The five-year grant will be used to develop and disseminate new strategies for faculty recruitment, retention and advancement.

Women remain significantly underrepresented on the science and engineering faculties of research universities. At WSU, women make up less than 15 percent of the STEM faculty.
