The purpose of the award is to enhance the postdoctoral researcher experience and enrich the lives of women in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, disciplines by providing funds for travel to a professional conference. Factors that enhance the postdoctoral researcher experience could include the purpose of the meeting and the extent to which postdoctoral researchers will participate in informal and formal networking opportunities. Factors that lead to enriching the lives of women in STEM disciplines could include participating in professional development workshops relevant to gender inequality and inequity. Up to $500 will be provided by KAWSE office toward the expenses associated with a presentation at a professional conference. The deadline for the submission of proposals is Oct. 31 for travel schedule January 2023 through December 2023.
