Type : Program Announcements & Information
Subtype : Education

Sample questions:
I want to make a documentary about women scientists, their lives and work. Would that be appropriate for Outreach and Communication?

I run a very successful intervention for girls and would like to broaden the number of girls involved by managing new projects in several locations. Would this be appropriate for Extension Services?

If I am not a social/behavioral scientist or education researcher, may I still apply to the GSE program?

What kinds of projects is GSE currently funding?

I would like to design an intervention that will give girls and/or women hands-on experiences in STEM education and/or research. Would such an activity fall within the scope of the GSE program?

I’d like to conduct research on the underrepresentation of women faculty members in STEM fields. Could I propose a research project that addresses tenure-track and family policies?

I want to develop a new course in Computer Science that would incorporate gender neutral/friendly/equitable practices into the curriculum. Would that fall under the scope of the GSE program?

I am interested in the underrepresentation of boys and/or men of color in STEM fields. Could I propose a research project where the research questions of interest involve boys?
