Brookhaven Women in Science Offers Scholarship for Women Science Students
Applications are now being accepted for the Renate W. Chasman Scholarship for Women. This scholarship was established in 1986 to encourage women who have taken a break from formal education to resume their studies in natural sciences, engineering or mathematics. The winner will receive a one-time award of $2,000 from Brookhaven National Laboratory's Brookhaven Women in Science, a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to promote the advancement of women.
Candidates for the scholarship must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens who live in Nassau or Suffolk County, or in the boroughs of Brooklyn or Queens. They must be accepted for credit in a degree-oriented program at an accredited institution. Their program of study for 2010-2011 must be either at the junior or senior undergraduate level or at the first-year graduate level, to be pursued on a half-time or greater basis. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2011.
