CSWEP Call for Applications
Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund
CSWEP welcomes applications to the Joan Haworth Mentoring Fund, which was established to encourage senior mentoring women and institutions to incorporate mentoring of junior professionals into their programs. The fund provides small grants (typically less than $1K) 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. The application must include cost-sharing with the home institution and the mentoring must benefit more than an individual faculty member. Mentoring does not need to be field specific and can also include professional development advice. Successful applicants will be asked to write a summary of what they have gained from the mentoring effort.

CSWEP Co-Sponsorship of Mentoring Events and Experiences
As part of an experimental outreach program, CSWEP has minor funding available for co-sponsoring one-off mentoring events and experiences that are consistent with CSWEP’s mission. For example, in 2013 CSWEP provided supplemental funds to defray the travel expenses of multiple mentors to a pre-conference junior mentoring workshop at the 2013 Meeting of the Midwest Econometrics Group as well as contributed to a Speed Mentoring event organized by DC-Women in the Economics Profession.
