WASHINGTON—The National Science Foundation has added two awards to its Research Opportunities for Women program that will provide funds for planning grants and career advancement.

“The new programs were de signed to provide further opportunities and more flexibility to women scientists and engineers,” said Margrete S. Klein, program coordinator for the Research Opportunities for Women pro-gram. “The Research Planning Grants encourage women to pre pare grant proposals and the Career Advancement Awards are de signed for women already funded to allow them to do research in an adjacent field.”

The Research Planning Grants provide up to $12,000 for one year and can be used for the preliminary work involved in planning a re search proposal. The Career Advancement Awards are limited to $50,000 for two years. The funds can be used for research-related activity that will advance the applicant's career. The two new awards augment the Research Initiation Awards for women, which provide funds for women who have never served as a principal investigator or who have had their research careers interrupted for at least two of the last five years. The awards range from $25,000 to $90,000 a year for up to three years.

The deadline for consideration for the new awards is January 15, although Research Initiation Awards are given out throughout the year. (For more information contact Margrete S. Klein, (202) 357-7734.)
