Scholarship opportunity for women in science

Dear Colleagues,

The Seattle chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) is awarding scholarships of $1000 – $1500 for the 2013-2014 academic year. Applicants must be women who are majoring in a science, math or engineering field at a four-year college or university in Washington State and will be juniors or seniors in the fall of 2013. Scholarship recipients are selected based on a combination of academic achievement, financial need, motivation to pursue a science-based career, and community service. The 2013-2014 application is enclosed. Please distribute it to women in your classes or to your advisees who are qualified to apply.

The deadline is April 15, 2013. I apologize for the extremely short notice and for my oversight in not sending you the scholarship application sooner. I will do better next year!

Thank you for helping me to get the word out about this scholarship opportunity.



Dr. Fran Solomon

Chair, Seattle AWIS Scholarship Committee
