Announcement of Fund to Support Mentoring for Women Professional Economists
JOAN HAWORTH MENTORING FUND
The Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP) announces the funding of the Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund for use by institutions and senior women to provide mentoring support in the form of supplemental travel expenses.
The objective of this fund is to encourage senior mentoring women and institutions to incorporate mentoring of junior professionals into their programs. It is designed to provide travel funds to permit mentors to either extend a visit to an institution for the purpose of mentoring or to visit an institution for that purpose alone.
Applications for funds may be submitted by the institution, junior women or the mentor herself. Guidelines for the expenses covered are the same as the AEA Guidelines for travel expenses.
The funds are administered through the AEA and granted by application to the CSWEP Board.
