Grant To Hopkins For More Women, Minority Engineers

November 04, 1991

The School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University has received a $75,000 grant from the General Electric Foundation for a program designed to increase the number of women and minorities pursuing academic and research careers in engineering and the physical sciences.

Morgan State University will participate with Hopkins in the program, called "Faculty for the Future." Participants in the program, which will begin in January, will be chosen by a panel of Hopkins and Morgan engineering professors.

Ross B. Corotis, associate dean for academic affairs at Hopkins' engineering school, said that nationally women make up only 15 percent of undergraduate engineering students, while blacks account for 6 percent and Hispanics 4 percent.
