Enhancing the academic careers of women in science, technology, engineering, & mathematics
Recruitment funding was a particularly successful aspect of ADVANCE. We provided monetary support to departments that were planning to diversify their faculty through the hiring of qualified women. During the first year of the ADVANCE Recruitment Program, each of the four colleges below were given funding for one ADVANCE faculty fellow OR supplemental funding for one regular tenure-track position.
Although ADVANCE no longer provides funds for hiring new faculty, we continue our recruitment efforts through a variety of other activities, such as providing best-practices presentations to search committees, a recruitment handbook, and a recruitment web-tutorial.
ELIGIBILITY: Any department whose discipline was eligible for NSF science, technology, engineering, or mathematics funding, including all departments in the College of Engineering and the Graduate School of Oceanography, and the following departments in the College of Environmental Life Sciences and the College of Arts and Sciences: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science & Statistics, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, Sociology & Anthropology, Cell & Molecular Biology, Environmental & Natural Resource Economics, Fisheries, Animal & Veterinary Science, Nutrition & Food Sciences, Natural Resources Science, and Plant Sciences.
