The purpose of the Women’s Educational Equity Program is to promote gender equity in education in the United States and to promote equity in education for women and girls who suffer from multiple forms of discrimination based on sex, race, ethnic origin, limited English proficiency, disability, or age. Applicants are encouraged to design projects that will lead to an increase in the number of low-income women and girls pursuing and excelling in advanced courses in mathematics or science (including computer science) and entering highly skilled careers in which they have been underrepresented. Grants will range from approximately $125,000 to $250,000 each. The deadline is April 1, 2005, for notice of intent to apply and April 18, 2005, for transmittal of applications.
