Past Program: New Scholars

elsevier_foundation_winners_chemistry_2014Since 2006, our New Scholars grant program has contributed to the advancement of early to mid-career female scholars, helping them balance family responsibilities with demanding careers in science, health and technology. With more than 10 years, 50 grants, and ca $2.5 million investment, we have provided grants for family friendly policies, career skills, dual career issues, recognition awards, benchmarking studies, and boosting professional visibility through childcare grants.

In 2016, after a decade of programming, we have created a new program, Diversity in STM. Using a partnership model, Diversity in STM fosters the inclusion and advancement of both women and young people from underserved communities in science. Read more about our new programs.
