SDE/GWIS National Fellowships Program

|Description:||The SDE/GWIS National Fellowships Program is proud to offer fellowships in 2013 to help increase knowledge in the fundamental sciences and to encourage research careers in the sciences by women. Endowment funds, mostly generated from bequests, provide the annual income that supports scientific research done by SDE/GWIS award winners. Last cycle, we distributed just under $70,000 in fellowship funds to ten deserving women scientists.
The SDE/GWIS National Council will determine exact fellowship amounts with the maximum allowable award being $10,000.

Awards will be made to women holding a degree from a recognized institution of higher learning, of outstanding ability and promise in research, who are performing research at any institution in the U.S. or abroad.
