The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) has been awarded an ADVANCE grant of $750,000 from the National Science Foundation to support the project Career Advancement for Women Through Research-Focused Networks.
The project is funded for five years and will focus on establishing research networks for women. The Research Collaboration Networks for Women will be modelled on the successful WIN Network, (Women In Numbers) in number theory, which ran several collaboration conferences at Banff International Research Station (BIRS). Networks WiSh, WhAM!, WhAM!2, WINE, WIT, WIG, WINART, Women in Math Biology, and Algebraic Combinatorixx have already been launched.

More information about the Career Advancement for Women Through Research-Focused Networks project will be made available on the AWM website.
