Supporting Women in Science

Women in Science Fellowship

Established in 2000, the Fellowship is awarded each year to an outstanding female graduate student who is pursuing an advanced degree in the natural sciences. The Fellowship enables these talented scientists to fully immerse themselves in their research and utilize the Museum’s resources to collect data essential to the completion of their dissertations. 

Women in Science internships

Each summer, the Women's Board supports internships for high school and undergraduate students. Learn about past Women in Science interns and their work and look for new available internship opportunities each spring.
