The Women in Science and Engineering Program was recently awarded $1500 from the UA Commission on the Status of Women

The Women in Science and Engineering Program was recently awarded $1500 from the UA Commission on the Status of Women to expand the STEM Pipeline Mentorship Program during the 2016-17 academic year. 

Launched in 2015, the Pipeline Mentorship Program supports the entry and success of young women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math by providing structured networking and professional development opportunities.  Program participants attend monthly skills-building workshops on topics such as: STEM majors and career paths; financing your STEM education; goal setting for academic and professional success; and empowering yourself/empowering others.  

Open to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, 36 young women participated in the Pipeline Mentorship Program in 2015-16. With funding from the UA Commission on the Status of Women, we're hoping to expand the program to include 40-45 young women in 2016-17 and are also adding monthly social events to give program participants more chances to interact with and learn from each other.
