Graduate Women in Science – National Fellowship Program


The Graduate Women In Science (GWIS) National Fellowship Program promotes knowledge in the natural and social sciences and encourages women’s academic and professional careers in the sciences. Endowment funds, mostly generated from bequests, provide the annual income that supports scientific research conducted by GWIS fellowship winners. During the 2022-2023 funding cycle, we distributed $50,000 in research awards to seven outstanding women scientists and recognized eighteen graduate students and eight early-career honorable mentions. Since 2008, we have awarded nearly $750,000 in research awards.

Award Amount: Up to $10,000

Predicted Submission Date: January 2024
