Engineering Information Foundation Connects to the Power of the Internet
The Engineering Information Foundation (EiF), a private foundation whose mission is to improve worldwide engineering education and practice through information technology and the recruitment of women, enters cyberspace with the launch of its new Web site. The site showcases EiF's programmatic initiatives, provides information about applying for a grant, and describes grants awarded and projects now underway. The new site will invite grantees to participate in listservs created specifically to facilitate information exchange and resource sharing among grantees in each of the EiF funding areas.
Those who visit EiF's Web site will find detailed information about the three areas funded by EiF:
Available for the first time on the web site is a comprehensive list of all grants funded from 1997 to date, with contact information when available. The listservs, planned for a second quarter 2000 launch, will facilitate the sharing of information and experiences among each group of grantees. Ideally, this easy method of communication provided to grantees worldwide will create intellectual synergy among grantees and further enhance funded fields of interest.
