Objectives of WIE support fund

  1. Promote women involvement in science and engineering in R10

[Mandatory requirement] Policy of section matching fund:

When we support an activity in a large section, R10 WIE supports only equal or less than 50% of total expenses. The remaining funds will have to be supported by the section and/or other sources of funding. If it is a medium section, the support is up to 75% and for a small section, it is 100%

Section Incentives scheme:

Section incentives scheme in R10 is designed to support AGs and SBs.These section incentives are funds that were distributed to sections at the end of the year. Collaborations with students and AGs are highly valued. We hope the sections would be willing to support activities conducted by AGs and SBs.
