Entries for the ELAS Fund's XX competition with the call for proposals "School Management for Equity: They in the Exact Sciences", in partnership with the Unibanco Institute and the Carlos Chagas Foundation, have been extended to November 3, 2015.
 
The "Elas nas Exatas" competition aims to help reduce the impact of gender inequalities on students' career choices and access to higher education. It is the first competition aimed at female high school students, which will support initiatives developed in schools across the country. With it, the ELAS Fund expands its activities to a strategic space for promoting equity and transformation: the school environment.
 
In addition to reaching a new target audience, the ELAS Fund is also innovating in terms of theme and partnership with the XX Contest. For the first time, the fund is launching a competition focused on education and exact sciences and technologies. Also new is the partnership with the Unibanco Institute's School Management for Equity Program and the opportunity to rely on the research and evaluation expertise of the Carlos Chagas Foundation.
