1. Women's International Science Collaboration (WISC) Program 2001-2003

Women's International Science Collaboration (WISC) Program 2001-2003

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Directorate 
for International Programs announces the Women's International Science 
Collaboration (WISC) Program for 2001-2003.  Supported by the U.S. National 
Science Foundation (NSF), this program aims to increase the participation 
of women in international scientific research by helping establish new 
research partnerships with colleagues in Central/Eastern Europe, Newly 
Independent States of the former Soviet Union, Near East, Middle East, 
Pacific, Africa, the Americas, and Asia.

Small grants ($4,000-5,000) will provide travel and living support for a 
U.S. scientist and, when appropriate, a co-PI to visit a partner country to 
develop a research program. Funds can also be used to support a second 
visit to the partner country or for a foreign partner to travel to the U.S.

Men and women scientists who have their Ph.D. or equivalent research 
experience are eligible to apply. Applicants who have received their 
doctoral degrees within the past six years will receive special consideration, 
as will scientists applying to work with colleagues in less frequently
represented countries and regions. With the exception of applications 
involving the Americas, applications from male co-PIs must be accompanied by 
an application from a female co-PI as part of a U.S. research team (please 
contact M. Ratchford, see below, regarding special guidelines for the
Americas). Male and female graduate students (Ph.D. candidates) are also 
eligible to apply, if they will be conducting research in an established 
Ph.D. program in the U.S. and will be traveling with their Ph.D. advisor and 
will serve as co-PI on future proposals. (Male graduate students will need a
female co-PI.) Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents.

Only fields funded by the National Science Foundation and interdisciplinary 
research cutting across these fields are eligible. For further information, 
please visit the NSF web site (http://www.nsf.gov), or contact one of the 
AAAS administrators listed below.

Two competitions will be held, with application deadlines of January 15, 2002 
and July 15, 2002.  Approximately 40 awards will be made in each competition.

For further application information and region-specific guidelines, please
