Purpose: The fellowships originally focused on opening doors for women in the male-dominated fields of law and medicine. The focus has since expanded to include science and technology as the demand for a technologically skilled workforce has grown without proportional representation by women.
Eligibility: Applicants must be women who intend to pursue a full-time course of study toward a Master's degree at accredited US institutions during the fellowship year in one of the designated degree programs (Architecture, Computer/information sciences, Engineering, Mathematics/statistics). Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
Funding: $5,000 - $18,000.
Deadline Month: January
