Professorships for women


  • Anonymous


Three geophysicists have been named National Science Foundation Visiting Professors. They are among 27 scientists and engineers selected by NSF for the 1989–1990 Visiting Professorships for Women program.

VPW participants do advanced research and teach at host institutions. They also guide and encourage women interested in research careers. VPW activities at the host institution, such as special seminars or publications, increase awareness of students and faculty of the contributions of women scientists and engineers to the nation's scientific effort and demonstrate to students, especially women, opportunities for careers in science and engineering.
