Travel Awards & Extended Early Registration: Understanding Interventions 2014 Conference in Baltimore! May 16-18!

March 20, 2014

Dear Participants of the ADVANCE Hispanic Women in STEM Network,

Many of you have asked about opportunities to participate in conferences, and funding mechanisms for opportunities. Today, we have an event to share! Please see the information below regarding the May 2014 Understanding Interventions conference in Baltimore (UI 2014). This conference is a wonderful resource for learning about other ways to increase student, postdoc, and faculty participation in STEM, especially for underrepresented populations. This conference primarily attracts faculty and administrators, but they come from all over the country. In addition, several program officers from DC’s agencies are often present as observers or speakers. This conference can be a great resource for new information, motivation, and networking.


Please consider an application for the travel award! The details are below, and the application for the travel award is very short, and probably won’t take more than 30 minutes to complete. Our evaluators for the ADVANCE Hispanic Women in STEM project, Dr. Frances Carter, and Dr. Angela Byars-Winston, have participated in this conference. I have also participated in the past. This conference also draws other participants from a variety of programs such as NSF, NIH, NASA, etc. Please see the information that the program organizers sent below. This conference was discussed at the national ADVANCE meeting in Virginia. I have copied it here for your convenience. Again, please strongly consider an application for the travel award. I’ll look forward to seeing you there!

Kind regards,

Renetta Tull
