Marianna Russell Technology Grant
This fund will sponsor grants for women for technology-related professional development. This includes women who are in or are going into technology fields or working on activities related to technology career exploration and refocusing, changing, or enhancing skills in technology-related fields, either for oneself or in order to help other women achieve these goals. The term "technology field" is to be widely construed so as to include all facets of technology, including, but not limited to, work in sciences, engineering, teaching, communication, or administration related to technology. The amount of the grant will be determined by the amount of money available in a given year.
Activities to facilitate the professional development and career mobility of women include, but are not limited to, activities related to technology career exploration and refocusing, changing, or enhancing skills in technology-related fields, either for oneself or in order to help other women achieve these goals. Funding will be considered for, but not limited to:
- Attendance/presentation at professional conferences
- Professional development seminars
- Developing articles or books for publication
- Networking activities/mentoring projects
- Equipment/supply costs
- Expenses directly related to the ability to participate in a career-advancement opportunity
Selection criteria and requirements shall take into consideration the importance of the activity in its ability to help the recipient achieve her professional and personal goals, and the recipient's efforts to secure funding from other available sources. Preference shall be given to first time applicants. With all other attributes being equal, preference shall also be given to women who demonstrate shared attributes with Marianna Russell's dedication to nature and wildlife preservation.
