Workshop for women in science

Note: I applied for this two years running and was not accepted either time, but it looks like a great program (although obviously hard to get in).

Applications are now being accepted for the 2007 Faculty Horizons
Program at UMBC, which will be held July 12-14, 2007.

PURPOSE: The workshop, funded by the National Science Foundation
ADVANCE Program, is intended to provide post-doctoral research fellows
and upper-level graduate students, particularly women, in science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics with necessary skills to
become successful tenure-track faculty in the United States. Special
attention is paid to including women from underrepresented groups.

APPLICATIONS: Due to limited space, everyone must apply on-line
(http://www.umbc.edu/advance/registration07/) and be accepted to
attend. The application is available from April 19, 2007 - May 18,
2007. Funds are available to defray the cost of participation.

DISSEMINATION: Please share this announcement widely with those you
think may be interested in attending, or those who may know someone who
would find this workshop beneficial. A flyer for the workshop is
attached. Please post around your laboratory, department, etc.

Please email advance@umbc.edu for any additional information or
questions. For the most up-to-date workshop information, please visit
www.umbc.edu/advance and click on Faculty Horizons.

I went to a similar workshop held at my institution and found it to be the most influential two days of my entire life as a graduate student. Good luck getting accepted!

This workshop seems to be very interesting - I wish there would be something comparable near my workplace.

Hi ScienceWoman--
I'm not too sure how worried you are about protecting your privacy, but I thought I'd let you know that I could see briefly see the name of your institution when I clicked on the link for applications to this meeting. . .

Hi anonymous - not sure how you would have seen my institution name there. The link was a generic one sent to people from a variety of uni's. The workshop is being held at University of Maryland-Baltimore County. That's no secret. Thanks for the watchful eye though.
