Abstract of Proposed Collection TechGirls enables students aged 15– 17 to gain exposure to a range of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through a monthlong summer scholarship program in the United States. The program includes programming bootcamp, leadership skills development, job shadow with women in STEM fields, and a home stay with U.S. families. In addition to exposure to career and educational pathways, participants gain understanding of the United States and its culture and create a network of STEM-focused alumnae upon their return home. The authority for the program is the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended (22 U.S.C. 2451 et seq.). In order to assess the efficacy and impact of TechGirls, the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) intends to conduct an evaluation of the program, which will include collection of data from program alumnae between 2012 and 2019, program staff, host families in the United States, and job shadow hosts. As the TechGirls program has been running for almost 10 years, ECA is conducting this evaluation to determine the extent to which the program is achieving its long-term goals. In order to do so, ECA has contracted Dexis Consulting Group to conduct surveys with alumnae and surveys with their host families, program staff, and job shadow hosts. Methodology As baseline information is limited to initial profiles, it is necessary to collect information directly from program alumnae to assess the outcomes of the TechGirls experience, particularly in the areas of educational and career trajectories and networking with others. Additional perspectives will be sought from the participants’ host families and job shadow hosts. All of these groups will receive online surveys. Kevin E.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    TechGirls enables students aged 15-17 to gain exposure to a range 
of careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) 
through a month-long summer scholarship program in the United States. 
The program includes programming bootcamp, leadership skills 
development, job shadow with women in STEM fields, and a home stay with 
U.S. families. In addition to exposure to career and educational 
pathways, participants gain understanding of the United States and its 
culture and create a network of STEM-focused alumnae upon their return 
home. The authority for the program is the Mutual Educational and 
Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended (22 U.S.C. 2451 et seq.).
    In order to assess the efficacy and impact of TechGirls, the U.S. 
Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) 
intends to conduct an evaluation of the program, which will include 
collection of data from program alumnae between 2012 and 2019, program 
staff, host families in the United States, and job shadow hosts. As the 
TechGirls program has been running for almost 10 years, ECA is 
conducting this evaluation to determine the extent to which the program 
is achieving its long-term goals. In order to do so, ECA has contracted 
Dexis Consulting Group to conduct surveys with alumnae and surveys with 
their host families, program staff, and job shadow hosts.

Methodology

    As baseline information is limited to initial profiles, it is 
necessary to collect information directly from program alumnae to 
assess the outcomes of the TechGirls experience, particularly in the 
areas of educational and career trajectories and networking with 
others. Additional perspectives will be sought from the participants' 
host families and job shadow hosts. All of these groups will receive 
online surveys.
