Background: According to the National Science Foundation's 2014 report on Science & Engineering Indicators, women receive more than half of the bachelor's degrees awarded in the U.S. in biological sciences. They receive far fewer, however, in computer sciences (18.2%), engineering (18.4%), and mathematics and statistics (43.1%). Women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce. They comprise only 13% of all engineers and just 25% of computer and mathematical sciences. Furthermore, minority women comprise fewer than 1 in 10 employed scientists and engineers. UCI is working to improve these statistics by helping our female undergraduate students succeed in these fields.
While this program targets women undergraduates, we encourage anyone interested in STEM to attend. Please forward this email to anyone you think might benefit from learning more about internships and research opportunities in these fields.
