Grants of up to $9,000 to North Dakota Local education agencies, including approved consortia, secondary schools, and IHEs to promote enrollment in high-skill, nontraditional disciplines. Funding is intended to help students gain access to a wide range of occupational opportunities, regardless of gender.

Nontraditional Fields are defined as occupations or fields of work, including computer science, technology, and other emerging high skill occupations for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25% of the number of individuals employed in those occupations or fields of work. Examples of nontraditional occupations include males in nursing or females in engineering.

Funding may be used to support the cost of role models or mentors to assist with activities. Advanced students enrolled in a nontraditional program (girls in welding, boys in health sciences) or students who have completed a nontraditional project are good choices for role models and mentors.

Project goals:
- To assist students to access a full range of occupational choices regardless of gender
- To assist schools to meet or exceed Perkins performance levels for student participation in and completion of programs leading to nontraditional careers

Proposals should focus on one or more of the following:
- Hands-on activities, strategies, or services that acquaint students with the job duties found in nontraditional careers
- Hands-on activities featuring role models successfully employed in nontraditional careers
- Hands-on activities designed to educate parents and faculty on the benefits of high- wage, high tech, nontraditional careers
- Mentoring activities for students exploring nontraditional fields
- Retention activities for students enrolled in programs leading to nontraditional fields
