U.S. Mission to India: Seeking Proposals for Women in STEM Roadshow Project

Deadline: 12 July 2017

The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi (PAS New Delhi) in coordination with U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad and U.S. Consulate General Kolkata is seeking proposals for a project entitled “Women in STEM Roadshow.” Through this project, a grantee will organize a “Women in STEM Roadshow” comprised of nine workshops in Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities in the consulate districts of New Delhi, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

The workshops would also highlight STEM educational opportunities at U.S. institutions of higher learning, and introduce participants to EducationUSA.
