Since its inception in 2000, the Information Technology Workforce Program (ITWF) has supported basic research studies on the underrepresentation of women and minorities in information technology (IT).  ITWF is expanding its portfolio to include implementation/intervention projects that--based on research findings--seek to increase the numbers of women and underrepresented minority students and/or faculty in IT in the Nation's colleges and universities.  Implementation projects must incorporate rigorous programs of evaluation and dissemination.
