AWIS Educational and Professional Development Awards

The awards program is currently suspended indefinitely.

The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) supports career development for women scientists through its Educational and Professional Development Awards Program (Awards Program). Funds to support these Awards derive from the AWIS endowment through targeted donations.

The Awards Program was substantially revised recently to focus on assisting early-career women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) with professional development.

The Awards

The AWIS Awards Program supports travel for professional development, broadly defined. We particularly wish to encourage early-career scientists. Individuals may request funding to attend a conference, to acquire specialized training, or to pursue professional development.
