SINOPSIS

This article describes a study of the National Science Foundation’s Program for Women and Girls (PWG) (now called the Program for Gender Equity in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology) conducted by the Urban Institute between 1998 and 2000. The study assessed the PWG’s contributions to the field of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) education and gender equity. The study found that the PWG successfully effected both positive, short-term changes in human capital and long-term changes in knowledge capital and social capital resources to improve equity in SMET.
