Since it was established, the WEEA Program has funded more than 700 projects throughout the United States, as well as a number of contracts, including the WEEA Equity Resource Center at EDC. These grants address critical educational issues, including career education; sexual harassment and gendered violence; math, science, and technology education; leadership development; women's history; and bilingual education.
As a federal program, WEEA has helped to shape equitable outcomes for an entire generation of girls and women. WEEA grantees continue to offer leadership for inclusive education reform, and the thousands of participants in WEEA projects are at the core of the development of equity initiatives in education, work, and public life. Funds from WEEA have supported Title IX's vision, helping the country to reach such benchmarks as those noted by the U.S. Department of Education in Title IX: 25 Years of Progress (1997):
A small program, with no more than $3 million in annual funding, WEEA continues to help create equitable education for all students while it raises awareness of emerging educational issues, including gender equity for students with disabilities and the underrepresentation of women and girls of color in the sciences.
The WEEA Program office funds and administers the grant program. For more information on WEEA and its funding, contact Diane Austin at 202-260-1280.
