CSWEP: Calls and Announcements
CSWEP Call for Applications –
CeMENT: Mentoring for Junior Faculty, Workshop for Faculty in Doctoral Programs
January 5-7, 2016, San Francisco, CA
Deadline: September 15, 2015.
This mentoring workshop (formerly called the CeMENT National Mentoring Workshop) is aimed at mentoring female faculty in tenure-track positions at PhD granting economics departments in the U.S. or at institutions with similar research expectations. The workshop will consist of a two-day program, beginning directly after the 2016 ASSA meetings in San Francisco, running from 4:00PM on Tuesday, January 5th through 1:00PM on Thursday, January 7th. The AEA will pay for participants’ lodging and food during the workshop, but attendees must arrange their own transportation.
As in the previous programs, participants will be arranged into small groups based on their research area and will interact with each other and with senior (tenured) faculty mentors. Group members and mentors discuss and offer feedback on the participants’ research. In addition, the workshop includes a number of larger how-to sessions on topics such as: publishing, developing a tenure case, writing a grant, effective and efficient teaching, conferences and networking, and work/life balance.

CSWEP Call for Nominations –
2015 Carolyn Shaw Bell Award
Deadline: September 28, 2015.
The Carolyn Shaw Bell Award is given annually to an individual (male or female) who has furthered the status of women in the economics profession, through example, achievements, increasing our understanding of how women can advance in the economics profession and mentoring others. Nominations should include a nomination letter, updated CV and three or more supporting letters, with preferably at least two from mentees. As this award celebrates mentoring, nomination letters should be geared toward that activity, rather than toward academic achievements. The Award Committee automatically retains and considers applications for a period of three years. For more information on the Bell Award, click here.

2016 Summer Economics Fellows Program
Deadline: February 15, 2016.
Fellowships, sponsored by the American Economic Association and the National Science Foundation, are open to senior graduate students at the dissertation stage, post-docs and junior faculty. All economists are welcome to apply without regard to gender or minority status, although the intention of the program – advancing the careers of women and underrepresented minorities – will drive the selection process. Fellows are selected by the program with the agreement of the sponsoring institution in line with the program’s intention, the fit of the candidate with the activities of the sponsoring institution’s research group, and the value of the proposed research to advancing the sponsoring institution’s own goals. For more information, including a link to the online application form, click here.
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. For full details on application criteria and to access the application document, click here.
CSWEP Call for Applications –
Co-Sponsorship of Mentoring Events and Experiences
As part of an experimental outreach program, CSWEP has minor funding (most successful applications are less than $1K) 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.
