 The WVU ADVANCE Sponsorship Program is an external mentoring program supported by the NSF ADVANCE program for women in NSF funded disciplines in CEMR and ECAS. The WVU ADVANCE project aims to catalyze institutional climate change, promote diversity and inclusivity, support women in science and engineering, and promote the success of all faculty.

The Sponsorship program uses a mentoring approach developed by Hunter College’s NSF ADVANCE funded Gender Equity Sponsorship Program, where WVU faculty (Associates) will be paired with mentors (Sponsors) to work on a clearly identified project with specific outcomes. Associates may receive up to $10,000 to support their work and Sponsors will receive $5,000 for their participation.

To apply click the Faculty Equity Initiative link at the top of the WVU ADVANCE page ( For more information, contact Dr. Kasi Jackson at (304) 293-2339 ext. 1154 or .
