    OBJECTIVES:

    1) Brochure page 1, 2) 2, 3) Dr. Najma Heptuallah (green shawl), Governer of Manipur and Chief Guest of Workshop 1, got her Ph.D. in Biology at age 22 and had an offer from NASA, is talking to participants during break.

  • Clear images of the brochure pages, Page 1, and Page 2, where objective summaries are explained.

  • Background: The U.S. Embassy strongly supports initiatives that promote women’s social and economic development, integrate women into peace and security building, address and prevent gender-based violence, and ensure women’s full participation in civic and political life. Research shows that progress in women’s employment, health, and education can lead to greater economic growth and stronger communities. Integrating women in the corporate and government sectors is critical to good governance, economic growth, inclusive development, and regional security.
  • Program Goals: The goals of this funding opportunity are to:
    1. Strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and India through exchanges of information, experiences and expertise.
    2. Support economic growth and development by creating awareness for girls and young women on higher education opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
    3. Encourage more Indian students to consider higher education opportunities in the United States by interacting with U.S. university alumni in India and promoting EducationUSA.

  • Objective: To implement a STEM Roadshow in selected cities to encourage girls and young women to pursue opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
    - 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 coordinated the project entitled “Women in STEM Roadshow.”
