For Women

Despite advances made in the proportion of women choosing to pursue science and engineering careers, women continue to be significantly underrepresented in almost all science and engineering fields, constituting only approximately 22% of the science and engineering workforce at large, and less than 20% of science and engineering faculty in 4-year colleges and universities.

Through efforts targeted at all academic levels, from pre-college through junior faculty, NSF aims to increase the representation of women in the science and engineering workforce and to facilitate the advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce.
