NAE Receives $2 Million Investment from the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation to Expand EngineerGirl

The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) announced today that it is receiving a $2 million investment from the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation to support and expand EngineerGirl, NAE’s premier program that brings national attention to the exciting opportunities that engineering represents for girls and women. The gift was made under an agreement signed on June 28.

“We are grateful to the Clark Foundation for this generous investment, which will empower EngineerGirl to expand its reach and spark interest in engineering among even more young people at a time when the profession greatly needs more diversity and inclusion,” said outgoing NAE President C. D. Mote, Jr. “Private philanthropy provides the essential financial support that many of the NAE’s programs depend on to grow and advance engineering. This grant is particularly meaningful because my friend Jim Clark set a powerful example to us all with his leadership in engineering and his passion for getting young people involved, especially young women.”
