The International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics at Drexel University is pleased to announce the launch of the Executive Leadership in Academic Technology and Engineering (ELATE at Drexel) program for senior women faculty in engineering, computing, and related disciplines.
Although women receive 20% of PhDs awarded in the United States, they account for only 5% of full professor and 11% (41 of 379) of engineering department heads (data from NSF and ASEE). ELATE at Drexel is a part time, year-long fellowship program designed to develop the next generation of women engineering and technology leaders for our colleges and universities.Applications for the inaugural 2012-2013 class of ELATE are now open.
ELATE at Drexel™ is modeled after the highly acclaimed Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® program (ELAM).

We’re excited to announce the 2011 Google Roots in Science & Engineering (RISE) Awards!
Google’s RISE Awards exist to promote and support STEM education initiatives at both the K-12 and university levels. Google believes that technology will continue to play an important role in shaping our future and that an investment in the youth of today will drive innovation and technology for years to come. To that end, the Google RISE Awards seek to provide funding to innovative organizations that are making waves, sparking interest and excitement, while improving education and creating opportunities for hands-on learning in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
We funded some great organizations in 2010 and we are looking forward to seeing what 2011 applicants will come up with! This year, we hope to make a larger and more lasting impact on STEM communities by providing increased funding to groups with a big vision. We anticipate submissions will have proposals befitting $10,000 to $25,000 award amounts, however requests of $5,000 or more will also be considered.
The application portal opens November 1st and will close November 30th. Please remember to submit your proposals on time and submit all supporting documentation via Google Docs. Award recipients will notified in January 2012.
