ADVANCE PAID Opportunities at UNH
In September, 2009, UNH was awarded an NSF ADVANCE PAID grant to facilitate women STEM faculty in: successful advancement through careers as leaders in research and teaching; influencing policy and decisions at institutional and national levels; minimizing feelings of isolation; increasing satisfaction with resources and research support, faculty colleagues, Deans and chairs.
Several initiatives were implemented to address these goals: professional development for STEM faculty and department chairs; competitive grant solicitations to encourage research and leadership opportunities.
