Promoting An Educational Climate in Mathematics, Science and Engineering in Which Women Succeed As Well As Men


Model Programs

The model programs that the Sloan Foundation  supports within its programs for Promoting An Educational Climate in Mathematics, Science and Engineering in Which Women Succeed As Well As Men are intended not only to change the climate for women at the grantee institution but also to create programs and a standard of achievement that others institutions with emulate.

Current and recent projects are listed below. Further information concerning those that are highlighted may be obtained by clicking on the names (* indicates program supported by an Officer Grant. # indicates Sloan support for the program is complete.)
