California Girls Collaborative presents mini-grant conference

The California Girls Collaborative Project will hold its 3rd annual mini-grant conference on Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 9:30 a.m to 3 p.m. at the UC Berkeley Clark Kerr Campus at 2601 Warring Street, Berkeley.

This one-day conference targets organizations with programs that support girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Representatives from K-12 schools, higher education, professional organizations, business, government and community-based organizations are encouraged to attend.

Participants will learn about the CAL Girls mini-grant program and have excellent opportunities to network and form collaborations in order to apply for a $1,000 mini-grant.

CAL Girls is part of the National Girls Collaborative Project, which has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) three-year grant to extend the capacity, impact and sustainability of existing and evolving STEM projects and programs committed to motivating girls.

The registration fee for the conference is $25, which includes morning coffee, lunch and parking. Online registration is available at: .

The conference is sponsored by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, American Association of University Women and University of California, Davis.
