    • AAUW Fellowships, Grants, and Awards: The American Association of University Women has fellowships, grants, and awards for women at all stages in their career.
    • The L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science The L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science is a national awards program that annually recognizes and rewards five U.S.-based women postdoctoral researchers at the beginning of their scientific careers who are pursuing careers in the life and physical/material sciences, as well as mathematics, engineering and computer science. Recipients receive up to $60,000 each that they must apply towards their postdoctoral research.
  6. General Fellowships

    • NSF Fellowships: The National Science Foundation offers generous 3 year graduate followships for incoming first and second year graduate students.
    • AFCEA: The Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association offers four kinds of fellowships.
    • SMART: The Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation Program is sponsored by the Department of Defense and has fellowships for students willing to accept employment with the DoD after they graduate.
    • NDSEGF: The National Defence Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship offers 3 year fellowships to students beginning their graduate studies.
    • Hertz Foundation Fellowships: Merit based fellowships for applied math and statistics.
  7. Programs for Graduate Women in Mathematics

    • Princeton IAS Women and Math Program: An annual workshop that combines talks on a focused topic with mentoring and discussions of peer relations and career opportunities.
    • EYH: Expanding Your Horizons is an annual workshop conference for middle and high school girls. The goal is to provide fun hands-on activities that educate girls about careers in math and science. It's a great conference to volunteer for.
  8. Programs for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics

    • EDGE: The EDGE program is designed to strengthen the ability of women and minority students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences. It is a one month summer program fow women who are either graduating seniors going to graduate programs in math, or first year graduate students in math.
    • GWU Summer Program: Five week summer program for undergraduate women who are contemplating graduate school.
    • Smith College Center for Women in Math: Smith offers a Post-Baccalaureate program for women who did not major in math or whose majors in math were light, but who are still interested in math and would like to determine if they should go to graduate school in math.
    • Carleton College Summer Program: Four week summer program for undergraduate women in the middle of their studies (post-calculus, pre-upper div).
  9. Conferences for Women in Mathematics

    • NCUWM: The Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics gives undergraduate women a chance to present their research and learn about graduate school and careers in math.
    • AWM Workshop at the Joint Meetings: The AWM sponsors a series of workshops for women grad students and postdocs at the joint meetings every year.
