Welcome to the student travel award application process for the 2019 Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in STEM. The ERN Conference is cosponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Education and Human Resources Programs (EHR) and the NSF Division of Human Resource Development (HRD), within the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR). The conference will be held in Washington, D.C. on February 21-23, 2019.
A limited number of travel awards are available for students who are selected for poster or oral presentations at the ERN Conference.
The 2019 ERN Travel Award covers the conference registration fee, housing, airfare, and ground transportation. The conference will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21, and will end at midnight on Saturday, Feb. 23.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is pleased to accept nominations for the 2019 Alan T. Waterman Award. Established in 1975 to commemorate the Foundation's first Director, the Waterman Award is NSF's highest honor for promising, early-career researchers.
Nominees are accepted from all sources, and from any field of science and engineering that NSF supports. The award recipient will receive a medal and an invitation to the formal awards ceremony in Washington, DC. In addition, the recipient will receive a grant of $1,000,000 over a five-year period for scientific research or advanced study in any field of science or engineering supported by the NSF, at any institution of the recipient's choice. NSF is especially interested in nominations for women, members of underrepresented groups in science and engineering, and persons with disabilities.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria
Complete nomination packages, consisting of nominations and four letters of reference, are due by Oct. 22. The nominations and letters must be received through NSF's FastLane system. To submit a nomination, please visit https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/honawards/.
- A candidate must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. He or she must be 40 years of age or younger, or not more than 10 years beyond receipt of the Ph.D. degree, by December 31 of the year in which he or she is nominated.
- A candidate should have demonstrated exceptional individual achievement in scientific or engineering research of sufficient quality, originality, innovation, and significant impact on the field so as to situate him or her as a leader among peers.

Women engineers have a visibility problem. Like women in other ultra-masculine sectors, they are often excessively visible as women, but overlooked when it comes to their technical expertise. This paradox gets in the way of forming relationships at work and hurts their advancement.
Writing a resume can be a lot of work. Not only do you have to condense the entirety of your career and knowledge into just one page of paper–you have to customize it for the position and company you’re applying to, proofread it, and revise it until it’s perfect (your resume is, after all, the most important document of your job search). All of this can add up to a significant amount of time, and seriously slow down your job search.
Most job seekers know they shouldn’t discuss certain topics or respond to interview questions in certain ways. But communication doesn’t just consist of verbal speech; it also includes a variety of non-verbal cues.
Applicants in any industry should be aware of how they present themselves and what signals they might be giving off through their actions, appearance and overall body language.

I should have been celebrating. I had just hit the “submit” button on the online portal for doctoral theses, concluding my Ph.D. studies. And I did feel a sense of satisfaction. I had worked hard and was proud of what I had accomplished. But I was also overwhelmed by depression and anxiety about my future. Almost all my recently graduated friends had several published papers from their Ph.D. work; I had none. I thought my chances at the academic career I so wanted were ruined. I felt lost and alone in an endless desert.

Like many parents, I relished the opportunity to take my three daughters last year to see Hidden Figures, a movie about three African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn. After a high-spirited and inspiring ending, I remember walking out of the theater and asking my youngest who was four at the time, “So do you think you could become an engineer someday?” “Yes!” she enthusiastically replied.
A federal bill that proposes to deal with sexual harassment in science was introduced on Friday, days after a top CERN physicist, Alessandro Strumia, claimed at a conference that “physics was built by men.”
The “Combatting Sexual Harassment in Science Act of 2018,” spearheaded by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-TX, aims to study “factors contributing to, and consequences of, sexual harassment” in STEM fields, primarily through research grants, national data collection efforts, and the appropriation of $17,400,000 in federal funding.
