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 2020-2021 funding cycle, we distributed $50,000 in research awards to seven outstanding women scientists and recognized thirteen honorable mentions. Since 2008, we have awarded nearly $750,000 in research awards.
