"Nontraditional Fields" is 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.

Project Goals:
1. To assist students to access a full range of occupational choices regardless of gender.
2. 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:
1. Hands-on activities, strategies, or services that acquaint students with the job duties found in nontraditional careers.
2. Hands-on activities featuring role models successfully employed in nontraditional careers.
3. Hands-on activities designed to educate parents and faculty on the benefits of high- wage, high tech, nontraditional careers.
4. Mentoring activities for students exploring nontraditional fields.
5. Retention activities for students enrolled in programs leading to nontraditional fields.
