The National Science Foundation awarded NYU Tandon a $500,000 grant to go toward a summer program focusing on preparing female students for a career in the startup world.
The money will go to the school’s Convergence of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute, which will hold a summer program for students (of both sexes, but women are encouraged to apply) that will focus on thinking of a product and building the infrastructure needed to start a company around it. The students, who will be split into founder pairs, will have the help and mentorship from faculty at the university over the summer.
