Taking on a position of scientific leadership such as becoming president or vice president of a scientific society or professional organization, or assuming editorship of a journal can be essential elements in advancing a scientist’s academic career. However, these opportunities often require significant investments of time that may hinder one’s research. Some scientists decide to turn down leadership opportunities due to the competing demands of their own labs or academic commitments.
The goal of NSF ADVANCE is to “increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers”. This award program is to provide leadership development grants to promote the advancement of women faculty in STEM departments.
