The West Virginia University Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) Giving Circle supports faculty initiatives and student scholarships. The giving circle awarded $10,000 to STEM female faculty and students within the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences and the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources for the 2013-2014 academic year.
WiSE brings together alumnae and friends who seek to impact the field of science by encouraging and mentoring young women in their pursuit of professional careers within the NSF-funded STEM disciplines – science, technology, engineering, and math. WiSE is an example of WVU’s commitment to recruiting, promoting, and advancing women in STEM. The giving circle is an internal program that was developed simultaneously with WVU’s National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE project, which seeks to “increase the participation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers.”
