Report on the FY '98 Activities of the POWRE Program

(Professional Opportunities for Women in Research and Education)


The Professional Opportunities for Women in Research and Education (POWRE) announcement was developed in the spring of 1997 to inaugurate a program that would merge the previous targeted womenís programs into one overall program. In Fiscal Year 1998 (FY98), the second POWRE competition was held. Funding from NSF programs and directorates, with additional funds made available by the Office of Research on Women's Health in the National Institutes of Health (NIH), totaled over $13 million in FY98.

The FY98 competition was conducted under NSF announcement 97-91. Management of the competition was coordinated through an internal NSF working group with NSF-wide directorate and office representation, referred to as the PCC (POWRE Coordinating Committee). To effectively distribute the announcement, the PCC made extensive use of web connections maintained by science and engineering research, education, and industry organizations.

In addition to planning for management, directorate and office coordinating groups prepared web sites that include clarifying information for women proposing in each disciplinary area, and also FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) pages. These web sites are extremely effective in communicating with prospective PIís, and pages from these web sites are linked through the POWRE home page found under "Crosscutting Programs" at the NSF web site.

Information on all awards is summarized in Table 1. A total of 790 proposals and supplement requests were received, including 704 proposals and 86 supplement requests. Overall, a total of 206 awards, including 174 new grants and 32 supplements to existing awards, were made. The NSF-wide success rate was 26 percent and, among the directorates and OPP, the success rates varied from 24 percent to 40 percent.

Details about all grants made in the POWRE competitions including abstracts, can be found by typing "POWRE" in the NSF Award Data Search Box. Information about a specific award may be obtained by entering the appropriate award number in that same box. A tabular listing of the awards is included as Table 2.

** Awarded with funding from the National Institutes of Health

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering. Grantees are wholly responsible for conducting their project activities and preparing the results for publication. Thus, the Foundation does not assume responsibility for such findings or their interpretation.

NSF welcomes proposals from all qualified scientists, engineers and educators. The Foundation strongly encourages women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to compete fully in its programs. In accordance with federal statutes, regulations, and NSF policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from NSF (unless otherwise specified in the eligibility requirements for a particular program).

Facilitation Awards for Scientists and Engineers with Disabilities (FASED) provide funding for special assistance or equipment to enable persons with disabilities (investigators and other staff, including student research assistants) to work on NSF-supported projects. See the program announcement or contact the program coordinator at (703) 306-1636.

The National Science Foundation has Telephonic Device for the Deaf (TDD) and Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) capabilities that enable individuals with hearing impairments to communicate with the Foundation regarding NSF programs, employment, or general information. TDD may be accessed at (703) 306-0090 or through FIRS on 1-800-877-8339.
