The Phi Sigma Rho Foundation is happy to announce the availability of a new grant available November 1st! DreamGirls Grants will provide service and leadership opportunities for active and alumnae organizations of Phi Sigma Rho to support the next generation of women in engineering through engineering-focused programming for middle school girls. These programs will be transferable to schools, Scout trips, community shelters, and more! Dream Girls in Action and DreamDay programming through the DreamGirls Initiative are fundable programs through this grant opportunity.
Founded in 2015 by Phi Sigma Rho co-founder, Rashmi Drummond, the DreamGirls Initiative is a nonprofit focused on exposing middle schools girls to female role models and their careers through a variety of hands-on events. This program is committed to inspiring young women in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through day long “Dream Days” and after-school “DreamGirls in Action” programming. These programs differentiate themselves by putting career paths first, instead of focusing on STEM skills alone. The standout feature of these programs is the focus of female role models for participants through corporate involvement and hands-on programming
An officer of a Phi Sigma Rho chapter or alumnae organization must apply for the grant six months in advance of their event date through the Phi Rho Portal. Decisions on grant funding will be responded to within 30 days of their application submission. Only one grant application per event is allowed. If you have any questions about the DreamGirls Grant, please contact Kendall Murphy, VP of Programming of the Phi Sigma Rho Foundation - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding is limited for 2023. If you are interested in supporting DreamGirls programming, please consider donating to the DreamGirls Fund through the Phi Sigma Rho Foundation!
