Each Women in Science Giving Circle (WISGC) Award is $1,500.00. Three are available.
Undergraduate women applicants must generally be engaged in scholarship that clearly lies within a STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine)-related discipline. Special consideration will be given for undergraduates whose primary degree focus falls within a scientific discipline that has limited representation of women as role models. Applicants must have completed at least one semester at Wright State University. Applications will be considered for non-research based support if clear justifications can be made for how a WISGC award can help to overcome a perceived barrier (e.g. childcare costs, travel costs to present research, tuition costs, book costs, research funds) to success in the applicant’s chosen field.
Undergraduate student awards can support stipend for living expenses, childcare, travel costs to present research, tuition costs and/or education or research-related expenses.
The 2018 application cycle will open late February. Undergraduate applications must include the following by the March 24th deadline:
- Complete the application
- A letter of support from a faculty member in your program.
Completed applications are due March 24th by 5 p.m.
